The Market Surveillance team is principally responsible for protecting the economic functioning of exchange markets by ensuring the markets are free from manipulation or other circumstances that have the potential to distort prices or otherwise affect the orderly trading and expiration of exchange contracts.
Market Surveillance is responsible for:
At the conclusion of a surveillance review or investigation, the Surveillance team will determine whether there is reason to believe a rule violation has occurred. If the team determines no violation occurred, the matter will be closed administratively with no action taken. If the team determines there is reason to believe a rule violation has occurred but that the circumstances do not warrant formal disciplinary action, the matter may be closed administratively or closed with the issuance of a letter of warning. Certain violations may warrant summary fines pursuant to Rule 512. Alternatively, if the team determines the circumstances warrant formal disciplinary action, the matter will be formally referred to the Market Regulation Enforcement team.
