Effective immediately, NYMEX and COMEX have adopted amendments to various rules in Chapters 4 and 5 of the Rulebook eliminating references to the Pit Committee and replacing those references, where appropriate, with references to the Floor Conduct Committee or Exchange Officials. Given that NYMEX and COMEX do not maintain separate pit committees for each trading pit as is the practice at CME and CBOT, the responsibilities currently handled by pit committee members in Chicago are handled by the NYMEX & COMEX Floor Conduct Committee or Exchange Officials in New York.
CME Group is the world's leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace. The company is comprised of four Designated Contract Markets (DCMs). Further information on each exchange's rules and product listings can be found by clicking on the links to CME, CBOT, NYMEX and COMEX.
