    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 18, 2008, the Commission

    published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking to

    amend its rules, guidance and acceptable practices concerning trading

    comment period until January 5, 2009. In order to encourage the

    submission of meaningful comments and to assure that all views are

    considered in its final determination, the Commission has determined to

    grant the request and to give full consideration to any comment

    received during the extension period. While the Commission has received

    some comment letters on the proposal, none yet have been from any

    designated contract markets, which have the responsibility of complying

    with Regulation 1.38 and Core Principle 9. Accordingly, the comment

    period for the Commission's proposed amendments to Regulation 1.38 and

    Part 38 is hereby extended to January 5, 2008.

    Issued in Washington, DC, on November 10, 2008, by the
