Transactions by eligible contract participants in selected commodities may be conducted on an EBOT as set forth under the CEA and the Commission’s regulations. EBOTs are subject only to the CEA’s anti-fraud and anti-manipulation provisions. An EBOT is prohibited from claiming that the facility is registered with, or recognized, designated, licensed, or approved by the Commission. Also, if it is performing a price discovery function, the EBOT must provide certain pricing information to the public. To date, 20 EBOTs filed notices with the Commission. In FY 2010, 14 EBOTs were in business for at least part of the year; one however, withdrew its EBOT notification during the fiscal year.
