In response to requests from clearing firms, and in conjunction with an initiative of the Futures Industry Association (FIA), CME Group is planning to introduce a new field to allow clearing firms to identify on each trade in books, the source of the order which resulted in that trade. This in turn will allow firms to charge appropriately differentiated rates for orders entered directly by customers versus orders phoned into an order desk, as well as other order distinctions a firm may want to recognize for differentiating customer fees and commissions.
The formal name of the new field is the Execution Source Code. More typically, it is called the Rate Identifier, and it is informally referred to as the Voice/Director Indicator.
