About ELX

Regulation

The Dodd-Frank Act mandates that swaps must be traded on SEFs or DCMs. ELX was approved as a “DCM” (Designated Contract Market) in 2009 and self-certified its first swaps contracts on September 30, 2013. The "NFA" (National Futures Association) provides ELX with trade practice and market surveillance, other compliance services, and arbitration disputes. The NFA is the independent self-regulatory organization for the U.S. futures industry and has no ties with any specific marketplace.
