On April 7, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission requested public comment on a petition submitted by ICE Clear Europe Limited (ICE Clear Europe) to amend an earlier CFTC order permitting ICE Clear Europe and futures commission merchants that are clearing members of ICE Clear Europe to commingle in a US customer segregated funds account futures and options that are traded on ICE Futures US and ICE Futures Europe and related customer funds, as well as to permit portfolio margining between such positions. The previous order related to certain energy contracts, and ICE Clear Europe has now asked the CFTC to amend the order to also apply to certain interest rate, energy and financial contracts.  

Comments must be filed on or before April 21. 

The petition and associated documentation are available here.
