    ``(A) IN GENERAL.--An agreement, contract, or transaction conducted in reliance on the exemption in paragraph (3) shall be subject to the provisions of subparagraphs (B) through (E), under such rules and regulations as the Commission may promulgate, provided that the Commission determines, in its discretion, that the agreement, contract, or transaction performs a significant price discovery function as described in subparagraph (B).
    ``(B) SIGNIFICANT PRICE DISCOVERY DETERMINATION.--In making a determination whether an agreement, contract, or transaction performs a significant price discovery function, the Commission shall consider, as appropriate:
    ``(i) PRICE LINKAGE.--The extent to which the agreement, contract, or transaction uses or otherwise relies on a daily or final settlement price, or other major price parameter, of a contract or contracts listed, for trading on or subject to the rules of a designated contract market or a derivatives transaction execution facility, or a significant price discovery contract traded on an electronic trading facility, to value a position, transfer or convert a position, cash or financially
    settle a position, or close out a position.
    ``(ii) ARBITRAGE.--The extent to which the price for the agreement, contract, or transaction is sufficiently related to the price of a contract or contracts listed for trading on or subject to the rules of a designated contract market or derivatives transaction execution facility so as to permit market participants to effectively arbitrage between the markets by simultaneously maintaining positions or executing trades in the contracts on the electronic trading facility and the designated
    contract market or derivatives transaction execution facility on a frequent and recurring basis.
    ``(iii) MATERIAL PRICE REFERENCE.--The extent to which, on a frequent and recurring basis, bids, offers, or transactions in a commodity are directly based on, or are determined by referencing, the prices generated by agreements, contracts, or transactions being traded or executed on the electronic trading facility.
    ``(iv) MATERIAL LIQUIDITY.--The extent to which the volume of agreements, contracts, or transactions in the commodity being traded on the electronic trading facility is sufficient to have a material impact on other agreements, contracts, or transactions listed for trading on or subject to the rules of a designated contract market, a derivatives trading execution facility, or an electronic trading facility operating in reliance on the exemption in paragraph (3).
    ``(v) OTHER MATERIAL FACTORS.--Such other material factors as the Commission specifies by rule as relevant to determine whether an agreement, contract, or transaction serves a significant price discovery function.
    ``(C) CORE PRINCIPLES APPLICABLE TO SIGNIFICANT PRICE DISCOVERY CONTRACTS.--
    ``(i) IN GENERAL.--An electronic trading facility on which significant price discovery contracts are traded or executed shall, with respect to those contracts, comply with the core principles specified in this subparagraph.
    ``(ii) CORE PRINCIPLES.--The electronic trading facility shall have reasonable discretion in establishing the manner in which it complies with the following core principles:

    ``(II) MONITORING OF TRADING.--The electronic trading facility shall monitor trading in significant price discovery contracts to prevent market manipulation, price distortion, and disruptions of the delivery or cash-settlement process through market surveillance, compliance, and disciplinary practices and procedures, including methods for conducting real-time monitoring of trading and comprehensive and accurate trade reconstructions.
    ``(III) ABILITY TO OBTAIN INFORMATION.--The electronic trading facility shall--
    ``(aa) establish and enforce rules that will allow the electronic trading facility to obtain any necessary information to perform any of the functions described in this subparagraph;
    ``(bb) provide such information to the Commission upon request; and
    ``(cc) have the capacity to carry out such international information-sharing agreements as the Commission may require.
    ``(IV) POSITION LIMITATIONS OR ACCOUNTABILITY.--The electronic trading facility shall adopt position limitations or position accountability for speculators in significant price discovery contracts, where necessary and appropriate, to reduce the potential threat of market manipulation, price distortion, and disruptions of the delivery or cash-settlement process or congestion, especially during trading in the delivery month.
    ``(V) EMERGENCY AUTHORITY.--The electronic trading facility shall adopt rules to provide for the exercise of emergency authority, in consultation or cooperation with the Commission, where necessary and appropriate, including the authority--
    ``(aa) to liquidate open positions in a significant price discovery contract; and
    ``(bb) to suspend or curtail trading in a significant price discovery contract.
    ``(VI) DAILY PUBLICATION OF TRADING INFORMATION.--The electronic trading facility shall make public daily information on price, trading volume, and other trading data for significant price discovery contracts, as the Commission considers appropriate.
    ``(VII) COMPLIANCE WITH RULES.--The electronic trading facility shall monitor and enforce compliance with any rules of the electronic trading facility applicable to significant price discovery contracts, including the terms and conditions of such contracts and any limitations on access to the electronic trading facility with respect to such contracts.
    ``(VIII) CONFLICT OF INTEREST.--The electronic trading facility shall--
    ``(aa) establish and enforce rules to minimize conflicts of interest in its decision-making process; and
    ``(bb) establish a process for resolving the conflicts.
    ``(IX) ANTITRUST CONSIDERATIONS.--Unless necessary or appropriate to achieve the purposes of this Act, the electronic trading facility shall endeavor to avoid--
    ``(aa) adopting any rules or taking any actions that result in any unreasonable restraints of trade; or
    ``(bb) imposing any material anticompetitive burden on trading on the electronic trading facility.
    ``(D) IMPLEMENTATION.--The electronic trading facility shall have discretion to take into account differences between cleared and uncleared significant price discovery contracts in applying core principles in subclauses (IV) and (V) of subparagraph (C), and the Commission shall take such differences into consideration when reviewing the implementation of such core principles by an electronic trading facility.
    ``(E) NEW SIGNIFICANT PRICE DISCOVERY CONTRACTS.--
    ``(i) NOTIFICATION.--An electronic trading facility shall notify the Commission whenever the electronic trading facility has reason to believe that an agreement, contract, or transaction conducted in reliance on the exemption provided in paragraph (3) displays any of the factors relating to a significant price discovery function as described in subparagraph (B) (including regulations under this paragraph).
    ``(ii) REVIEW.--In addition to any review conducted upon receiving a notification pursuant to clause (i), at any other such time the Commission determines to be appropriate, but at least on an annual basis, the Commission shall conduct an evaluation, appropriate to the agreement, contract, or transaction, to determine whether any agreement, contract, or transaction conducted on an electronic trading facility in reliance on the exemption provided in paragraph (3) is performing a significant
    price discovery function.''.
