MiFID II / MiFIR Outline
MiFID II entered into force on 3 Jan 2018
MiFID II, the revision of MiFID I and a new regulation, MiFIR changes the rules for trading commodity derivatives. All derivatives contracts are effected by MiFID II and led to increased reporting requirements for trading participants. EEX Group built up a unique compliance service framework to meet MIFID II requirements with minimal effort.
All traders exceeding the ancillary activity exemption threshold are categorised as an investment firm and are therefore inside the scope of MiFID II. Only traders with ancillary activities in trading commodity derivatives stay outside the scope of MiFID II.
Every commodity derivative contract is subject to position limits (see more information in tables below) and trigger the obligation for market participants as well as trading venues to report positions.
