Following is the FEC+ deployment schedule:
· Testing for ALL post-trade processing, including give-ups, average-priced give-ups, and cross-exchange allocations, using the FPL-compliant FIXML 5.0 API, is currently available in:
- New Release for CME/CBT/NYMEX/COMEX/DME
- CMECE CERT for CMECE.
This includes both outbound and inbound messaging capabilities. FECPlus in New Release/CMECE CERT is used to manage all post-trade processing transactions. The existing FIXML 4.4 API is not used for any post-trade processing in New Release/CMECE CERT.
· Monday, January 28, 2013: Production launch date for migration of post-trade processing to FECPlus for CMECE using the FPL-compliant FIXML 5.0 API.
· Monday, February 25, 2013: 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.
The Clearing House published a test script for testing Post-Trade Processing on FECPlus (see CH Advisory #12-532). Firms should use this high-level test script, in addition to their own test scenarios, to verify their readiness for the Production Launch.
The Clearing House will check in periodically with firms on their testing status and to offer assistance with testing. Please contact CME Clearing Services (CCS) with any questions related to FECPlus testing or the overall FECPlus migration.
For questions or further information please contact CME Clearing Services (CCS) at 312-207-2525 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
