Cocoa is a soft commodity traded at the IntercontinentalExchange on its ICE Futures U.S. unit and in Europe on its NYSE Liffe division. CME Group, which is planning a 2015 launch of a London-based cocoa contract, announced in August 2014 that it would offer “participation credits,” which will return money to participants depending on the success of the contract, in addition to its usual market-maker incentives.  View page
