      Market By Order Market Data

      Starting Sunday, December 4 (trade date Monday, December 5), 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 updated MBO rollout schedule for production.

      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.

      To ensure customers can access, trade and process the market data for Market By Order (MBO), CME Group will hold a mock trading session on Saturday, November 12. All customers and trading system providers who plan to support MBO are strongly encouraged to participate. For more information about the Mock Trading Session, please view the mock trading session script.

      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, November 12. 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.

      Events and Announcements

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

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

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