In the United States the commodities market is a regulated one with the CFTC (Commodities Futures Trading Commission) being the federal agency who provides regulation. The CFTC has delegated some of its responsibilities to the NFA (National Futures Association) a SRO (Self Regulatory Organization). As a result of the regulatory oversight commodities in the US are purchases through licensed commodities brokers. Typically a broker would have their series three license through the NFA to transact with clients. A listing of some commodities brokers can be found at the below referenced listing.
