Transactions by eligible contract participants in selected commodities may be conducted on an exempt board of trade (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 market must provide certain pricing information to the public. To date, 11 EBOTs have filed notices with the Commission.
