In order to ensure that all customers are treated fairly, and pursuant to approval granted by the CFTC and the Trustee, CME has directed its clearing members to delay distribution of transferred funds and the proceeds of the liquidation of any transferred positions until the calculation is completed, which is expected by the close of business Tuesday, November 8, 2011. This temporary measure is necessary to ensure that CME Clearing can properly verify that the correct amount of collateral was allocated to each of the customers involved in the bulk transfer of positions from MF Global.
• Customers may trade during the verification process subject to their clearing member’s requirements.
