Deliveries Plus – PRODUCTION – Changes and New FunctionalityPlease be advised Monday, August 13, 2012 new functionality and changes will be available in Deliveries Plus. The changes are currently available for testing in the New Release enviroment.
To support Portfolio Margining, changes were made to holding and intent screens in Deliveries Plus. The system will now allow firms to enter their portfolio margining account on the user interface for holdings and intents. The account number entered will resolve to the associated position account. If the account number does not match an existing position account, the default position account will be used.
In addition, the long date file template has been updated to include an account number at the end of the file. This is an “optional” field. If a firm does not submit an account number, the file will still be accepted. Firms may still use the current long date template until a firm’s service provider can support the additional account number field. The new file format is available on cmegroup.com through the following link:
For further information on Portfolio Margining, please refer to Clearing House Advisory Notice 12-194.
Delivery Schedule - ADPs
Deliveries Plus has made a change to the way ADP’s are handled on the Delivery Schedule. A firm can only convert a delivery schedule to an ADP on the Delivery Summary tab by utilizing a new button called “ADP”. This will allow firms one place to manage ADP’s.
