As a reminder, Monday, February 25, 2013, is the Production launch date for migration of ALL post-trade processing, including give-ups, average-priced give-ups, and cross-exchange allocations to FECPlus for CME/CBT/NYMEX/COMEX/DME using the FPL-compliant FIXML 5.0 API.
In order to help the clearing community prepare for the launch, the Clearing House has created a test script for testing Post-Trade Processing on FECPlus. Firms should use this high-level test script, in addition to their own test scenarios, to verify their readiness for the Production Launch. As always, firms should test FEC+ the same way they use FEC Production functionality in order to achieve the best test.
CME Clearing Services will be available to assist with test scenarios or to help pair up firms to test together. Please contact us with questions or concerns.
For questions or further information please contact CME Clearing Services (CCS) at 312-207-2525 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
