CME Globex Access
With BMD now utilizing CME Globex as its electronic trading platform for futures, including the global benchmark Crude Palm Oil futures (FCPO) contract, customers can more easily engage in spreading and arbitrage opportunities between the CME CPO and the BMD FCPO contracts. This arrangement offers unparalleled global distribution through CME Globex’s multiple access points through nine international telecommunication hubs worldwide, one of which is located in Kuala Lumpur.

CME Group has now launched the Client Systems Wiki with detailed information on CME Globex functionality, messaging, and market behavior. The Software Development Kits PDFs will no longer be available as of June 1, 2012. Please update your bookmarks accordingly.

USD-denominated Crude Palm Oil Futures
With the launch of the Crude Palm Oil Futures (CPO) contract, CME Group customers are able to trade the world’s most consumed edible oil in a cash-settled contract with the safety and liquidity of CME Globex.

The CME CPO contract, as a USD-denominated palm oil futures contract, complements the existing Malaysian MYR-denominated Crude Palm Oil Futures (FCPO) contract. It is cash-settled to the physically-delivered BMD FCPO contract. CPO also consolidates Malaysia’s position as the leading price discovery centre for palm oil traded globally.

Key Features of CME’s Crude Palm Oil Futures

  • USD-denominated
  • Cash-settled to the physically-delivered BMD FCPO contract
  • Electronically traded on CME Globex
  • Reduced capital requirements due to cross-product margin efficiencies with other CME Group contracts
