JPMorgan Chase has admitted wrongdoing and agreed to pay more than $920 million to settle market-manipulation investigations.
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission said in a statement that this was the biggest monetary penalty it has ever imposed. Charges include a $436.4 million fine, $311.7 million in restitution and more than $172 million in disgorgement.
