TOCOM to Change "Top 10 Volume by Member"


TOCOM publishes the "Top 10 Volume by Member" report, which contains information on the members holding 10 largest trade volumes, with the name of each member and the number of trade volume (the total of buy and sell transactions) for each commodity.
When there are 10 or less members trading certain commodity, other than those belonging to the Agricultural Product & Sugar Market, all the names and trade volume of participating members in that commodity are to be disclosed, which might make it possible to speculate such members' and their customers' positions and trading patterns. As such, TOCOM will not publish the report regarding the following commodities from the clearing period of August 1, 2014.

Gas Oil, Chukyo Gasoline, Chukyo Kerosene, and Gold Options (Call and Put).

from August 1, 2014 to January 31, 2015

Periodic Review of the Top 10 Volume by Member report is made two times a year, in February and in August. (TOCOM will make an announcement in January 2015 about the changes to be made on February 2015.)
