      New - User-Defined Instruments Enhancements

      Effective Sunday, October 2 (trade date Monday, October 3), the User-Defined Instrument (UDI) functionality on CME Globex will be enhanced to support the following:

      • Ability to create the first listed options strikes on an underlying future, following the Rulebook listing rules
      • Ability to create an options strike with a maturity greater than 9 years in the future
        • Strikes will be created using a 2byte maturity year in tag 55-Symbol in MDP 3.0 messages, and in tag 107-SecurityDesc in iLink and Drop Copy messaging
          • E.g., ONZ26 C3000

      UDI functionality allows users to dynamically create options strikes that co-exist with exchange-listed options strikes and allow the scope of tradeable instruments on CME Globex to expand without listing a larger group of options instruments.

      UDIs created real-time are disseminated with the Market Data Security Definition (tag 35-MsgType=d) message. Customers can submit quotes and orders against the UDI and also incorporate the UDI into User Defined Spreads.

      UDIs are:

      • Created on the CME Globex platform using CME Direct only.
      • Available for options on the following.
      User-Defined Instruments Enhancements
      Market Segment MDP 3.0 Channel Channel Label

      Market By Order Market Data

      Beginning in Q4 2016, to increase market transparency and customer choice, CME Group will offer Market by Order (MBO) information in-line with the current Market by Price (MBP) for CME Globex markets.

      Market Data Platform with MBO will feature:

      • Ability to view individual queue position and size of individual orders at a price while remaining anonymous
      • Existing channels enhanced to provide both MBO and MBP data on a single feed
      • CME Direct support
      • Exchange and asset class roll out model

      The client impact assessment provides functionality and messaging information.

      With the introduction of MBO overall incremental feed bandwidth is expected to increase 30-40%. During peak times the number of incremental feed packets per millisecond may increase up to 40-50%.

      A new MBO certification suite will be available in AutoCert+. Customer systems who choose to process MBO via CME Globex must complete this certification.

      Please contact your Global Account Manager with any questions or concerns in the U.S. at +1 312 634 8700, in Europe at +44 203 379 3754 or in Asia at +65 6593 5505 for additional information.

      New - Indicative Opening Enhancements

      Starting in Q4 2016, CME Group will introduce an enhancement to Indicative Opening behavior to increase transparency and provide market participants with Indicative Opening Quantity. With this enhancement, a new MDP3 Indicative Opening Quantity (IOQ) statistic will be sent with the Indicative Opening Price (IOP). The tag will represent the probable aggregated quantity of all orders executed during the opening. The IOQ will include max show and stop order quantity.

      Along with this change, the logic for calculating the book quantity during the pre-open and reserve states will also be updated.

      The client impact assessment provides dates, functionality and messaging information.

      Please contact your Global Account Manager with any questions or concerns in the U.S. at +1 312 634 8700, in Europe at +44 203 379 3754 or in Asia at +65 6593 5505 for additional information.

      Volatility-Quoted Options

      Effective Sunday, October 23, 2016 (trade date Monday, October 24), volatility-quoted options are scheduled to launch on six FX options products: Euro FX, British pound, Japanese Yen, Canadian Dollar, Swiss Franc and Australian Dollar in both American-style and new European-style options expiring at 2 p.m. Central Time (CT).

      Volatility-quoted options is a functionality that allows CME Globex clients to trade an option contract with an 'auto-hedge' into the corresponding quarterly month of the underlying futures contract. When a volatility trade occurs, CME will use a standardized option pricing model to create a delta neutral combination of premium options and futures, and exchange these between the buyer and seller.

      All of the volatility-quoted options products are currently available in the New Release for customer testing.

      To ensure customers can access, trade and process the market data for the new volatility-quoted FX options, CME Group will hold a mock trading session on Saturday, October 22. All customers and trading system providers who plan to support these products are strongly encouraged to participate. Additional information on the mock trading session will be available in future CME Globex notices.

      More information on these new products and the associated messaging and functionality enhancements is available in the Volatility-Quoted Options Client Impact Assessment.
