The NYBOT was founded in 1870. Initially it was known to all as the New York Cotton Exchange. In 1998, the New York Cotton Exchange merged with the Coffee, Cocoa and Sugar Exchange and the new entity was named as the New York Board of Trade.
Before the merger, the NYBOT was a private body. It is now supervised by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) which works independently under the US government.
