CME Globex Port Closure Policy
If the CME Globex Control Center (GCC) detects iLink session messaging behavior that may be detrimental to the CME Globex marketplace and this behavior is not corrected in a timely manner, the GCC will take action to close the port for the iLink session and protect the best interest of the Exchange. The GCC will make a best efforts attempt to reach a registered contact for the firm, either before or after the port closure.
Once the port is closed, all working orders previously entered through the iLink session will continue to work. If the sessions are COD ( Cancel on Disconnect) enabled, then the COD functionality will cancel all day and sessions orders. Due to the port closure, only Firmsoft access or a registered contact calling the GCC will afford the trading entity the ability to cancel those working orders.
To minimize the potential for such a development, CME Group strongly encourages all executing firms to properly monitor administrative and business level rejects and to ensure that order entry systems have proper order reject handling capabilities. In addition, CME Group encourages proper registration of contacts with the GCC through Firm Administrators.
Effective Sunday, January 15, 2012, firms will be subject to a $500 port maintenance charge for negligent iLink Session ID messaging which results in the closure of an iLink Session ID port by CME Group.
