A Derivatives Transaction Execution Facility (DTEF) is a board of trade that is registered with the [[CFTC]] as a DTEF. It is subject to fewer regulatory requirements than a [[contract market]], and to qualify as a DTEF, an exchange can only trade certain commodities (including excluded commodities and other commodities with very high levels of deliverable supply) and generally must exclude retail participants. Retail participants may trade on DTEFs through [[futures commission merchants]] with adjusted net [[capital]] of at least $20 million or registered [[commodity trading advisors]] that direct trading for accounts containing total assets of at least $25 million.<ref>{{cite web|url=http://www.cftc.gov/educationcenter/glossary/glossary_d.html|name=Derivatives Transaction Execution Facility (DTEF)|org=CFTC|date=February 4, 2009}}</ref>

A Derivatives Transaction Execution Facility (DTEF) is a board of trade that is registered with the CFTC as a DTEF. It is subject to fewer regulatory requirements than a contract market, and to qualify as a DTEF, an exchange can only trade certain commodities (including excluded commodities and other commodities with very high levels of deliverable supply) and generally must exclude retail participants. Retail participants may trade on DTEFs through futures commission merchants with adjusted net capital of at least $20 million or registered commodity trading advisors that direct trading for accounts containing total assets of at least $25 million.[1]
