Self-Match Prevention Enhancements

The Self-Match Prevention (SMP) enhancements launch scheduled for Sunday, September 24, has been rescheduled to Sunday, October 1 (trade date Monday, October 2). SMP is optional functionality that allows market participants to prevent the matching of orders for accounts with common ownership if both the buy and sell orders contain the same SMP ID and Globex Firm ID.

With these enhancements, iLink customers will have the ability to configure SMP functionality across multiple Globex Firm IDs within or across clearing firms. Upon this release, orders submitted with unregistered SMP IDs will be rejected. CME Globex will send a Session Level Reject (tag 35-MsgType=8) message including tag 58=<Reject Reason>. All Good 'Till Cancel (GTC) and Good 'Till Date (GTD) orders with unregistered SMP IDs must also be updated to use a registered SMP ID by the close on the Friday before launch. Any remaining GT orders with unregistered SMP IDs will be eliminated at Sunday start-up on launch weekend.

The Firm Administrator Dashboard interface will continue to be used to request new SMP IDs but will be enhanced to allow existing SMP IDs to be modified to support additional Globex Firm IDs.

To opt into Self-Match Prevention functionality, executing firms must submit orders and mass Quotes with a registered SMP ID in tag 7928-SelfMatchPreventionID.

 Starting Sunday, September 10, customers may register one or more CME Globex Firm IDs to their SMP IDs via the Firm Administrator Dashboard. Before Sunday, September 30, SMP will continue to function within a single Globex Firm ID as it does today.

Detailed information, including the launch schedule, is available in the Client Impact Assessment.

The new SMP enhancements are currently available for customer testing in New Release. Customer certification is not required, but CME Group strongly recommends all system providers test these changes thoroughly in New Release.

Please note: Clients planning to test the SMP enhancements in New Release must contact their Global Account Manager to receive new SMP IDs, which will be activated after the New Release daily maintenance period (16:00 to 16:45 Central Time).

CME Group will offer a mock trading session on Saturday, September 30, for customers test their Self-Match Prevention configuration in the CME Globex production environment. Customers are required to register to participate in the mock trading session. Please review the mock trading session script for additional information.

Changes in Timing and Frequency for Publishing VOI Messages

Effective Sunday, October 29 (trade date October 30), to provide more timely  information, CME MDP 3.0 will publish preliminary Daily Cleared Volume and Open Interest (VOI) market data messages earlier. With this change, the redundant preliminary VOI messages will no longer be published.

Changes in Timing and Frequency for Publishing VOI Messages:

  • First round of preliminary VOI messages will be published current calendar day (except Friday), after the trading session ends.
    • Between 6:30 pm – 6:45 pm Central time (CT) Monday – Thursday for COMEX, DME, and NYMEX.
    • Between 8:00 pm – 8:30 pm (CT) Monday – Thursday for CBOT and CME.
    • Friday’s preliminary VOI will be published on Sunday at 3:05 pm.
    • Currently, the first preliminary VOI message is published on the next calendar day (except Friday). Current publication times are available in the Client Systems Wiki.
  • Second round of preliminary VOI messages will be eliminated.
  • Final VOI messages will continue to be published the next calendar day (except Friday’s final VOI will continue to be published on Monday).
    • Between 8:00 am - 8:30 am Monday – Friday for all CME Group exchanges and DME.

Customers can determine the trading reference date by leveraging tag 5796-TradingReferenceDate in the cleared volume and open interest messages to identify the trading session date.

Please note: The publication timing and frequency of VOI messages for ITC messages, BMD Exchange and MGEX Exchange are not impacted by this change. MDP 3.0 VOI messages will be published significantly earlier than the ITC VOI messages.

These changes will be available for customer testing in New Release on Monday, September 12.

User-Defined Spread Enhancement

Effective Sunday, October 29 (trade date Monday, October 30), User-Defined Spreads (UDS) on CME Globex will support up to 40 outright instrument legs. Currently, UDS supports 26 outright legs. The Recursive UDS limit of 40 legs will be unchanged.

This change will apply to UDS Combos and UDS Covereds. UDS for futures already support 40 outright legs.

40 leg UDS functionality will be available in New Release for customer testing Monday, October 2.

CME Globex API Secure Logon – iLink and Drop Copy

CME Group is committed to our customers’ information security. To ensure the highest levels of security, CME Group will continue hardening iLink and Drop Copy 4.0 session authentication at logon in Q1 2018 with the launch of CME Globex API Secure Logon.

In production, the new logon will be supported in parallel with the current model until Friday, April 27, 2018. After this date, iLink and Drop Copy 4.0 sessions will only be allowed to logon with the new Secure Logon process. Customers are strongly encouraged to make the change in advance of the cutoff to ensure no business interruption.

CME Globex API Secure Logon includes:

  • Security credentials
  • New logon procedure
  • New iLink and Drop Copy message tags

The client impact assessment provides more detailed process and messaging information.

A new iLink and Drop Copy certification suite will be available in AutoCert+ on Monday, October 16, 2017. iLink and Drop Copy 4.0 customer systems must complete this mandatory certification.

The CME Globex API Secure Logon will be available for customer testing in New Release.
