ICE Food & Fiber futures

Post by mktmkr » Fri Feb 12, 2010 11:45 am

Just upgraded CSI to world futures so I can have access to ICE but when I look to add ICE futures all I see are the energy contracts and Robusta Coffee. Anyone know where the cotton, sugar, etc contracts would be?

CSI tends to use the "old" names of exchanges. Look for the Coffee Sugar and Cocoa Exchange, the New York Cotton Exchange, the New York Futures Exchange, the New York Board of Trade, FINEX, that sort of thing.

Got it, I guess my real question is does the data look at combined info from globex and ICE? Seems like ICE is the spot to trade food/fiber futures.

the globex data reflects the (old)NYMEX contracts, which are non liquid contracts from the days when NYMEX and NYBOT were trying to merge.
the ICE data, which is listed as NYCE, is the old CSCE and NYCE which merged to form NYBOT and then became NYCE which ICE bought.

anyway, sort the markets by name, download all of the sugar contracts, 19 of them?, and make a decision based on volume or access or something.
you'll probably end up with SB2 and LSU.
SB1 shows lots of volume, that's because ICE lists futures spreads as individual month volume.
