The article reports on the continuation of hedge fund regulation of U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Industry sources say due to the upcoming elections, SEC may oversee the funds more narrowly. Observers believe the agency bungled its attempt by achieving too much. SEC chairperson Christopher Cox says that hedge funds should be regulated and they will enforce federal securities laws for violators and cites more than 60 enforcement cases the agency has brought.
