New York Mercantile Exchange

The largest physical futures commodity exchange in the world. Established in 1882, it came into its current form as the result of a 1994 merger between the New York Mercantile Exchange and the Commodity Exchange. NYMEX trades almost exclusively in energy products and metals, among other commodities. It is regulated by the Commodity Futures Trading Board. Unlike some exchanges, it requires firms trading on its floor to send their own employees as brokers. Thus, employees of NYMEX itself only record transactions, and do not involve themselves with actual trade.
