      Critical System Updates

      Reminder: User-Defined Spreads Deletions

      As a reminder, CME Globex may delete expired UDS and UDI mid-week to create additional UDS capacity. A Security Definition message (tag 35=d) with tag 980-SecurityUpdateAction=D is sent when the instrument is deleted. A tag 48-SecurityID value from a deleted instrument can be re-assigned to a newly listed instrument same week. CME Group strongly recommends that clients process Delete Security Definition messages to remove the deleted instrument from their systems and ensure no conflict in the tag 48 associations.

      Match Algorithm Changes for Eurodollar Options on Futures

      Effective Sunday, October 23 (trade date Monday, October 24), and pending completion of all regulatory review periods, the CME Globex match algorithm for options on CME Eurodollar futures and for options on CME Bundle futures will be changed from Eurodollar Option (tag 1142-MatchAlgorithm=Y) to Threshold Pro-Rata with LMM (tag 1142=Q).

      Match Algorithm Changes for Eurodollar Options on Futures

      The Threshold Pro-Rata with LMM (Q) algorithm is used for CME Globex trading in options on Treasury futures. It is an enhanced pro-rata algorithm that incorporates a Lead Market Maker (LMM) allocation after TOP order allocation and before pro-rata trade matching.  Details on matching algorithm types are available in the CME Group Client Systems Wiki.  The matching algorithm type is defined in tag 1142-MatchAlgorithm in the MDP 3.0 Security Definition message.

      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.

      MBO is now available in New Release for customer testing. Please view the MBO rollout schedule for additional 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%.

      The MBO certification suite is now available in AutoCert+ for customer testing. 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 Functionality

      Update - Volatility-Quoted Options

      Denotes update to the article

      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. For more information about the Mock Trading Sessions, please view the mock trading session script.

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

      New - Messaging Efficiency Program Q4 2016 Benchmarks

      The Q4 2016 CME Globex Messaging Efficiency Program Product Group Benchmarks are now available online. The Product Group Benchmark Ratios are published quarterly, unless business circumstances for a particular product or product group require changes to be implemented more frequently.

      Additionally, effective trade date Monday, October 3, 2016, various product groups and levels will be added to the Messaging Efficiency Program; however, surcharges will not take effect until trade date November 1, 2016.

      CME Globex firms who exceed the benchmark ratios in the new product groups and are currently signed-up to receive Messaging Efficiency Program email notifications will be informed of any theoretical surcharges via a sample email notification.

      The CME Globex Messaging Efficiency Program creates fair business guidelines by which customers are billed a surcharge for overly high message rates.
