Intercontinentalexchange Group Inc. Analyst Notes 

On April 2, 2014, a news report on Bloomberg stated that Intercontinentalexchange Group Inc. (ICE) is planning to offer futures on the most-active derivative indexes. The new contract to be offered by the Company will be a replica of companies that feature in investment-grade and high-yield swap indexes owned by Markit Group Ltd. Bloomberg further reported that the Company's intent to offer futures based on swaps is based on Dodd-Frank Act in the U.S., which requires most swaps to be backed by clearinghouses, which increases the cost of using the contracts.
