The index was originally published by the New York Cotton Exchange.
1998 The New York Cotton Exchange and the Coffee, Sugar and Cocoa Exchanges merged to form the New York Board of Trade.
In September 2006, the New York Board of Trade was merged into ICE as a subsidiary.
Futures are traded on the Intercontinental Exchange.
The exchange is responsible for publishing real-time data on dollar index and U.S. index futures prices.
Reuters updates real-time data on the dollar index (i.e. the spot price corresponding to the ICE Dollar Index futures) every 15 seconds or so, according to the index’s composition.
The highest average for the currency, based on Reuters statistics, was used in the calculations.
The results are transmitted to ICE, which distributes them to data providers.
