Commodities derivatives trading rose to 4 billion contracts in 2013, from 3.24 billion a year earlier, as volumes were boosted by transfers of cleared over-the-counter energy swaps to futures by the InterContinental Exchange and the “continuing sharp increase” in volume at exchanges in mainland China. The U.S. and mainland China accounted for 79 percent of global commodity derivatives volumes.
