Under pressure from the film industry, the Commodities Futures Trading Commission on Friday gave itself another week to make a decision on the Trend Exchange, one of two proposals for markets that would trade in derivative contracts on movie box office receipts.

The CFTC now says it'll wrap no later than April 16.
