Live Cattle Migration:
Please be advised, starting with the October 2013 contract, CME Live Cattle will be migrated to Deliveries Plus. The migration offers new and improved features to Clearing Member Firms. Some of the features include:
- Ability to manage delivery scheduling through the Delivery Schedules section.
- Email confirmations for actions completed throughout the delivery process.
- Improved firm management functionality for feedlots.
Beginning on September 30, 2013, firms must submit long dates in Deliveries Plus either manually or by utilizing the long date file.
Users needing access to CME products in Deliveries Plus can contact CME Firm Support at 312.930.3444 or FirmSupport@cmegroup.com.
Long Date File Enhanced Functionality:
Clearing Member Firms utilizing FTP file uploads to report long dates may now combine their CME, CBOT, and KCB Wheat long dates onto a single file. As a reminder, CMFs submitting long date files must name the file PFTP.FXXXDLV.DATA (with XXX as CMF number) and use the following format: http://www.cmegroup.com/clearing/files/delivery_long_date_layout.pdf.
CMFs desiring to send more than one long date file at a time may do so by using the following file names (keeping XXX as the CMF number regardless of the data on the file or the number extension):
Firms submitting long date files may use a “zero out” record for each exchange (CME, CBOT, and KCB Wheat) at the top of the file to clear prior holdings. Please see the second page of the above long date file format link for proper “zero out” record formats.
Long date files can be submitted at any time, however the files are only swept into the Deliveries Plus system starting at 2:00p.m. CST and every 15 minutes thereafter, until 8:00 p.m. CST each business day.
To test long date file submissions in the New Release testing environment, please contact Deliveries at 312.930.3172 to coordinate. All long dates file submissions for testing must include the word “test” in the file name, e.g. PFTP.FXXXDLVTEST.DATA.
