Effective March 2, 2009, the current NYMEX ATOM system will be replaced by the Brokerage Payment System (BPS).
BPS provides such key features as:
- Web-based and accessible in the CME Group portal
- Retroactive rate entry
- User ability to create daily and monthly ad hoc reports
- Differentiation between electronic and pit executions
Production Parallel Testing
On February 2, 2009, a new brokerage payment system “BPS” will be available for production parallel testing. To ensure a seamless transition, NYMEX/COMEX brokerage rate tables in ATOM will be automatically converted to BPS. This means firms will not have to re-enter their ATOM brokerage rates into BPS. Accordingly, we strongly encourage you to take this time to familiarize yourself with BPS and ensure all data has been successfully converted.
BPS Parallel testing will be accessible through CME Certification portal at: http://connectcert.cme.com. To obtain access to this parallel environment, please fill out the following security access form:
If you have any further questions with security set-up, please contact CME Group’s Customer Support at 312.930.3444 between the hours of 6:30am CST and 5:30pm CST.
