Floating Price The Floating Price for each contract month for January 2015 and beyond is equal to the arithmetic average of the mid-point of the bid and ask quotations from Argus Biofuels publication for FAME 0 under the heading "RED Compliant FAME 0 fob Rotterdam" for each business day that such quotation is determined during the contract month minus the arithmetic average of the ICE Low Sulphur Gasoil Futures first nearby contract month settlement price for each business day that it is determined during the contract month, except as noted below.

The settlement price of the 1st nearby ICE Gasoil and or ICE Low Sulphur Gasoil Futures contract month will be used except on the last day of trading for the expiring ICE Gasoil and or ICE Low Sulphur Gasoil Futures contract when the settlement price of the 2nd nearby ICE Gasoil and or ICE Low Sulphur Gasoil Futures contract month will be used.
