A Financial Industry Regulatory Authority hearing panel has ordered that CMG Institutional Trading LLC in Chicago and its top official, Shawn Baldwin, be expelled from the financial markets for a number of serious municipal and securities rule violations.

CMG and Baldwin can appeal the ruling - which was issued in October but not made public until late last week - to FINRA's National Adjudicatory Council. They could not be reached for comment.
