Exempt Commercial Markets

Table of Contents >

Electronic trading facilities providing for the execution of principal-to-principal transactions between eligible commercial entities in exempt commodities may operate as ECMs, as set forth under the CEA and the Commission's regulations. An ECM is subject to anti-fraud and anti-manipulation provisions and a requirement that, if performing a significant price discovery function must provide pricing information to the public. A facility that elects to operate as an ECM must give notice to the Commission and comply with certain information, record-keeping, and other requirements. An ECM is prohibited from claiming that the facility is registered with, or recognized, designated, licensed or approved by, the Commission. A total of 37 ECMs have filed notices with the Commission. In FY 2011, 21 ECMs were in business for at least part of the year; one, however, withdrew its ECM notification during the fiscal year.
