Clearing House Currency Delivery Processing Procedures

Currency deliveries generally follow a three day settlement process occurring on the third Wednesday of the contract month unless such date is a non-business day or bank holiday. In the event the settlement day is a non-business day or a bank holiday in either Chicago or New York, then delivery will be made on the next business day immediately succeeding the non-business day or holiday. Please review the CME Group Rulebook on for specific rules on currencies.
