The Commodity Futures Trading Commission has announced that positions in the West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil (WTI) contract listed on ICE Futures Europe will be reported in the CFTC’s weekly Commitments of Traders (COT) reports, beginning with the COT report published on July 31. The ICE WTI contract settles based upon the settlement price of the WTI futures contract listed on the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX), and is being included in the COT reports due to this price linkage with the NYMEX contract.
