CFTC Requests Public Comment on a Certification Filing by ICE Futures US to Amend the Position Limits on NYISO Zone G Futures Contracts

Washington, DC — The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) is asking for public comment on a rule amendment certification filing by ICE Futures US. The Division of Market Oversight has determined to stay ICE Futures U.S. Inc. Submission No. 15-101, dated May 11, 2015, pursuant to Section 5c(c)(2) of the Commodity Exchange Act and §§ 40.6(c)(1), 40.7(a)(2) and 40.7(a)(3) of the Commission’s regulations.

This determination is based upon the fact that the submission contains an inadequate explanation of the subject rule amendment and is potentially inconsistent with the Act. Under the amendments, ICE Futures US would adopt a new estimation for deliverable supply on which position limits for eight of their NYISO Zone G electric power futures contracts would be based.

Comments should be submitted on or before August 6, 2015.

Commenters are invited to review both the ICE Futures U.S. submissions and the Commission’s questions for public comment at the following links:
