An Introduction to Commodity and Energy Trading Regulation

Edited By Aviv Handler


The financial crisis triggered an avalanche of legislation, much of which is being directed at the banking world. Such legislation includes the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR), Markets in Financial Instruments Directive and Regulation (MiFID II), Market Abuse Regulation (MAR), plus others such as the Financial Markets Infrastructure Act (FMIA, or FinfraG).

These regulations have been put in place primarily to address the issue of systemic risk. The commodity and energy trading market has, for the first time, also been hit, not only with these rules, but also specific ones such as the Regulation on Energy Market Integrity and Transparency (REMIT). In Europe the volume of rules has been particularly heavy.

The rules continue to arrive and to change, with far-reaching consequences for the markets to which they are applicable. MiFID II will have a significant impact on many market participants, demanding more intensive changes than ever before; MAR, much like REMIT, will require a vigilant attitude to abuse inside a company, an attitude which the FCA recently found to be lacking in the commodities industry. It is expected that regulators will take a far stricter stance in policing the business from now on.
