Effective trade date October 20, 2014 and pending all relevant CFTC regulatory review periods, the New York Mercantile Exchange, Inc. (NYMEX or Exchange) will amend NYMEX Rulebook Chapter 7 in connection with the listing of the physically delivered Illinois Basin Coal futures contract (see SER-7206 published October 1, 2014) on the same trade date.
