    • Effective Sunday, October 22 (trade date Monday, October 23), the daily settlement procedure for COMEX and NYMEX Metals futures will be harmonized to provide a standardized methodology and to improve transparency. The new standardized methodology will use:

      • A volume weighted average price for the derivation of the active expiration.
      • All other expirations will use volume weighted average calendar spread prices as the Tier 1 criterion for the derivation of settlements.
      • Any remaining expirations will use active and actionable calendar spread bids and offers as the Tier 2 criterion for the derivation of settlement prices.
