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, 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 by others.  As such, TOCOM decided not to publish the report regarding the following commodities from August 1, 2011.


Gas Oil, Chukyo Gasoline, Chukyo Kerosene, Nikkei-TOCOM Commodity Index (Contract Day Transaction and Contract Month Transaction), and Gold Options (Call and Put).


from August 1, 2011 to January 31, 2012

Changes to the Top 10 Volume by Member report will be made two times a year, in February and in August.  TOCOM will make an announce in January 2012 on the changes to be made in February 2012.
