As a Recognised Investment Exchange, ICE Futures Europe has several obligations under MiFID II and MiFIR. All Members of the Exchange are required to provide information to ensure compliance with the MiFID Regulations regardless of their own obligations under MiFID.
This page summarises some of the main MiFID obligations fulfilled by the Exchange. It includes information that is published by the Exchange as well as other MiFID II obligations.
Any MiFID-related queries should be directed to: [email protected]
MiFID requires trading venues to make the following information public.
Commitment of Traders “CoT” is a weekly report for the close of the week’s positions published on the following Wednesday. It is required by Article 58 of MiFID II as detailed in ITS 2017/1093.
Best Execution is a quarterly set of nine tables detailing the Exchange’s listing performance, order processing, transaction execution performance from a variety of perspectives. It is required by Article 27(3) of MiFID II as detailed in RTS 2018/575.
Pre-Trade Transparency is the publication of orders and quotes in compliance with Article 13(1) of MiFIR.
Post-Trade Transparency is the publication of transaction information in compliance with Article 13(1) of MiFIR.

Trading Schedule is a calendar set out by the Exchange to show the Trading Schedule of the Exchange (IFEU and NDEX), specifying business days and local public holidays throughout the business year.
NDEX Trading Schedule is a calendar set out by the Exchange to show the Trading Schedule of the Exchange (IFEU and NDEX), specifying business days and local public holidays throughout the business year.
MiFID requires trading venues to retain or report the following information. The Exchange requires its Members support to discharge these obligations.
Order Retention. All Orders must be retained for five years and must include specific information. The Exchange requires its Members and their Clients to provide the specific information in ICE Identifier Admin (IIA). Persons who require access to IIA should contact ICE Administration.
Transaction Reporting. All transactions executed by Members who are not subject to MiFIR’s transaction reporting requirements must be reported to the FCA by the Exchange by Trade Date + 1. Again the Exchange requires certain specific information to be provided in IIA.
Position Reporting. All positions held in commodity derivatives and emission allowance derivatives must be reported to the FCA each day detailing the individual beneficial owner of the position. The Exchange requires its Members to report this information to it via a secure files transfer by 14:00 on the next UK business day for each trading day. The Exchange does allow non-Members to report their positions directly to the Exchange in the same fashion and for one Member to report on behalf on another Member.

A daily trading summary report is provided in MFT showing the clearing member, clearing account, RIM and RIM country as well as the product name and the number of trades and lots traded.
