TOCOM Overview

The Tokyo Commodity Exchange, Inc., or TOCOM, deals in futures and options trading of precious metals, rubber, aluminum, and oil. TOCOM was founded in 1951 with the launch of the Tokyo Textile Exchange, which later merged with the Tokyo Rubber Exchange and the Tokyo Gold Exchange, forming today’s TOCOM. TOCOM is currently Japan’s largest commodity exchange, handling over 64% of all commodity futures transactions.

In September of 2016, TOCOM introduced the Next Generation Derivatives Trading System (Next J-GATE) upgrade, which includes a new ITCH price feed in addition to OM API changes.
