12. Yes, derivatives could be traded in another market.
Here's a simple way to think about it.

Hypothetically, we are saying that derivative trading inside the United States has led to oil prices rising world-wide.

If this is true, then hypothetically derivative trading ANYWHERE could lead to oil prices rising world-wide, if the volume of trading could get sufficiently high.

The "sufficiently high" part is why regulating the US might work. It would be hard, but not impossible, for other financial markets to reach the volumes that Wall Street can generate.
