EEX: NCG Futures to be migrated onto PEGAS on 27 June

EEX: NCG Futures to be migrated onto PEGAS on 27 June


The European Energy Exchange (EEX) continues to migrate its natural gas products onto PEGAS, the EEX and Powernext common exchange platform.
From 27 June 2013 onwards, the EEX 10 MW Gas Futures products for physical delivery in the NetConnect Germany area (Months, Seasons, Quarters and Calendar Years) will be available for trading on the Trayport® Exchange Trading SystemSM. This will increase the range of tradeable spreads on PEGAS, allowing Market participants to trade locational spreads on Futures products between the market areas of GASPOOL, NCG, TTF and PEG Nord on integrated order books for each market area. Liquidity of the single products will then be combined and, for the first time, spreads cleared at European Commodity Clearing (ECC) will be tradable on an exchange without execution risk.
PEGAS was launched on 29 May 2013 with all existing Powernext gas products. On 4 June, EEX successfully migrated its Natural Gas Futures for the market area GASPOOL onto the platform. Following the migration of the NCG Gas Futures, EEX will also migrate the Spot Market products for the GASPOOL, NCG and TTF area onto PEGAS. EEX will announce the exact launch date in due time.
About PEGAS – Pan-European Gas Cooperation:
PEGAS is a cooperation between the European Energy Exchange (EEX) and Powernext. In the framework of this cooperation, both companies combine their natural gas market activities to create a pan-European gas offering. Members benefit from one common Trayport gas trading platform with access to all products offered on the exchanges: spot and derivatives products for the German, French and Dutch market areas. Furthermore, spread products between these market areas are tradable on the same trading platform. For more information: http://www.pegas-trading.com

CFTC’s Division of Market Oversight Provides Time-Limited No-Action Relief to Provide for Transition to SEF Registration

CFTC’s Division of Market Oversight Provides Time-Limited No-Action Relief to Provide for Transition to SEF Registration

Washington, DC – The Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s (CFTC) Division of Market Oversight (DMO) today announced the issuance of a time-limited no-action letter providing temporary no-action relief to entities that have been operating pre-Dodd Frank trading platforms. The Commission published its final SEF rules in the Federal Register on June 4, 2013.

On December 11, 2012, DMO issued staff No-Action Letter 12-48 (December 2012 Letter) which effectively extended the relief provided by the Commission’s Second Amendment to the July 14, 2011 Order for Swap Regulation to allow swap trading facilities that were unregulated prior to Dodd Frank to continue operating during the pendency of, and transition to compliance with, the SEF final rules. The no-action relief provided by the December 2012 Letter will expire on June 30, 2013, prior to the effective date of the SEF final rulemaking, which is August 5, 2013.

This no-action relief shall commence on July 1, 2013, and shall expire on the compliance date of the SEF final rulemaking, which is October 2, 2013, and shall supersede all terms and conditions of the December 2012 Letter. Under this no-action letter, a swap trading facility that wishes to avoid an interruption in operations on October 2, 2013, must as of that date be granted either temporary registration status as a SEF or be granted full registration status as either a Designated Contract Market or a SEF.
