This advisory contains updated information for firm’s certification and scripted testing plans for Cycle 8 COMEX-only testing to emulate the COMEX launch on trade date August 17, 2009. Also included are details for Cycle 9 testing which includes NYMEX, COMEX and DME testing data. For the next 2 weeks, we have modified the clearing testing cycles to follow scripted testing on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. During those 2 cycles, clearing will refrain from injecting any other trade data on Tuesdays and Thursdays where testing will be limited to the script.
As in prior testing cycles, on other days (Mondays and Fridays) firms can request Globex trades be injected into clearing as well as floor trades entered and or allocated to them.
