In the comment letter, Natural Gas Exchange (NGX) offers several comments on the proposal, including:

  • Allowing FBOTs with pending no-action relief requests prior to the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Act to be treated the same as those entities who had previously been granted relief would "ease the administrative burden" on the commission.
  • The commission should clarify its intention that swaps contracts may be available for execution on an FBOT through direct market access even if the swap is not cleared.
  • The commission should clarify its definition of a "linked contract," especially as it pertains to "basis contracts," which, although they provide for physical delivery of the commodity, are not cash settled to the price of another market.
