Ice Exchange Agreements
Commodity exchanges in the United States are covered by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) regulations. The CFTC`s role is to enable “open, transparent, competitive and financially strong markets.” Another way to speculate on the prices of raw materials traded on ICE`s stock exchanges is online brokers that offer derivatives such as CFDs and options. ICE controls NYSE Liffe following a series of acquisitions. Euronext acquired the Liffe stock exchange in 2002. The NYSE acquired Euronext in 2007 and founded NYSE Euronext.
