In June of 2009, Chicago Climate Futures Exchange (CCFE) and World Steel Dynamics announced the formation of World Steel Exchange (WSE) to list futures contracts initially for steel scrap. The contracts would trade and clear on CCFE’s internetaccessible trading platform and would be based on the SteelBenchmarker family of price indices and other indices.[2] The WSE was expected to launch its first contracts later in 2009.[3]
