The Commodities Futures Trading Commission and the New York Mercantile Exchange said Friday they have stepped up their surveillance of natural gas trading in the past week and industry sources said traders' telephone records have been subpoenaed as part of that effort.
CFTC officials visited the trading pit this week, an employee of one New York-based trading firm that was subpoenaed said Friday.
"They didn't give any specific indication that they're targeting a specific trade, a specific trader or a specific (trading) house," said the employee, speaking on condition of anonymity.
R. David Gary, a spokesman for the CFTC in Washington, said the agency has increased surveillance because of recent volatility and high prices of natural gas trading activity on Nymex since the start of the month. But, as a matter of policy, he said the agency would neither confirm nor deny the existence of any formal investigation.
Nymex spokeswoman Nachamah Jacobovits said the focus of the scrutiny is to "make sure that futures prices are reflective of what's happening on cash markets and that there's no manipulation."
