This article is about the specific exchange that operates as a sub-division of the NYMEX, for Commodities Exchanges in general, see Futures Exchanges.

The COMEX is a subdivision of the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) specializing in the facilitation of metals futures trading. Originally an independent exchange, the COMEX was purchased by the NYMEX on August 3rd, 1994.
