FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Please contact Thomas Leahy of the
Division of Economic Analysis, Commodity Futures Trading Commission,
Three Lafayette Centre, 21st Street NW, Washington, 20581, telephone
(202) 418-5278. Facsimile number: (202) 418-5527. Electronic mail:
[email protected]

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: There are no substantive issues raised by
the application since futures contracts with similar terms based on the
composite index are actively traded. The Division believes that for
this reason, and in particular because the proposed contract is
identical to the actively traded composite index contract (except for
the contract size), a 15-day comment period is appropriate.
    Copies of the terms and conditions will be available for inspection
at the Office of the Secretariat, Commodity Futures Trading Commission,
Three Lafayette Centre, 21st Street NW, Washington, DC 20581. Copies of
the terms and conditions can be obtained through the Office of the
Secretariat by mail at the above address or by phone at (202) 418-5100.
    Other materials submitted by the NYFE in support of the application
for contract market designation may be available upon request pursuant
to the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and the Commission's
regulations thereunder (17 CFR part 145 (1987)), except to the extent
they are entitled to confidential treatment as set forth in 17 CFR
145.5 and 145.9. Requests for copies of such materials should be made
to the FOI, Privacy and Sunshine Act Compliance Staff of the Office of
Secretariat at the Commission's headquarters in accordance with 17 CFR
145.7 and 145.8.
    Any person interested in submitting written data, views, or
arguments on the proposed terms and conditions, or with respect to
other materials submitted by the NYFE, should send such comments to
Jean A. Webb, Secretary, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Three
Lafayette Centre, 21st Street NW, Washington, DC 20581 by the specified
