Energy powers economies and the price of energy commodities are some of the most watched economic indicators. Our suite of over 1000 energy futures and options contracts has created a network of commodity market participants that rely on our markets daily.

Today, a large percentage of the world's oil futures are traded on our markets. The overall Brent complex acts as a reference price for approximately two thirds of the world’s oil and our Brent futures contract serves as the world’s benchmark for light, sweet crude. Our natural gas and power markets meet the hedging needs of North American and European energy market participants and are offered alongside our crude and refined oil, coal, natural gas liquids and other emerging energy markets.
