CFTC plans to investigate 17 contracts traded on the Intercontinental Exchange Inc. (ICE) to determine whether they should be subject to greater regulatory oversight. The 17 contracts are: PB&E Citygate Financial Basis Contract; Waha Financial Basis Contract; Malin Financial Basis Contract; HSC Financial Basis Contract; Dominion-South Financial Basis Contract; AECO Financial Basis Contract; Permian Financial Basis Contract; TCO Financial Basis Contract; San Juan Financial Basis Contract; TETCO-M3 Financial Basis Contract; Zone 6-NY Financial Basis Contract; Chicago Financial Basis Contract; NGPL TxOk Financial Basis Contract; Mid-C Financial Peak Contract; Mid-C Financial Peak Daily Contract; Mid-C Financial Off-Peak Contract; and Mid-C Financial Off-Peak Daily Contract. The CFTC has stated that "[f]ollowing issuance of an order determining that a contract traded on an exempt commercial market (ECM) such as ICE performs a significant price discovery function," ICE must comply with the CFTC’s position limit authority, emergency authority and large trader reporting requirements, among others.
