      Critical System Updates

      New iLink Architecture

      In Q1 2014, CME Group launched the first Phase of new iLink Architecture, Market Segment Gateway (MSGW) for TAS markets only. In Q1 2015, CME Group will launch Phase 2 of this initiative, which will implement Market Segment Gateways throughout the rest of the iLink infrastructure, to provide:

      • FIFO ordered message handling per market segment.
      • Elimination of variability associated with multiple sessions across multiple gateways.

      All customers are encouraged to review the new iLink Architecture Client Impact Assessment.

      The Phase 2 launch will allow customers to access the Market Segment Gateways directly which will involve a new session ID model, messaging and functionality changes. Customers may choose to access CME Globex markets through the MSGWs or the current Convenience Gateways (CGWs), which will continue to be supported and will route through the MSGWs.

      Phase 2 will be launched over several weekends. Prior to each launch weekend, CME Group will conduct a mock trading session. MSGWs will be available in New Release for customer testing in Q4 2014. A new MSGW certification suite will be available in AutoCert+ in Q4 2014. Customer systems who want to connect directly to the MSGW must complete this mandatory certification. Additional information on the MSGW launch schedules and mock trading sessions will be published in the CME Globex Notices.

      Details on the new iLink Architecture roadmap can be found online. For an overview of the new iLink architecture, please review the iLink Architecture webinar.

      Please contact your Global Account Manager with any questions or concerns in the U.S. at +1 312 634 8700, in Europe at +44 203 379 3754 or in Asia at +65 6593 5505 for additional information.

      New iLink Failover Process

      Beginning in October 2014, CME Group will introduce a new iLink failover process to improve customers’ ability to recover from a CME Globex component failure.

      When a CME Globex component fails over from the primary to backup instance, customer iLink messages will be rejected with Session Level Reject (tag 35=3) messages including tag 58=Technical Error – Market Segment: <MarketSegmentID> is not available at this time. After the backup instance is up, order entry will be allowed again.

      Currently, messages sent during failover are not guaranteed to be acknowledged by CME Globex. This new iLink Failover Process change will affect all iLink sessions.

      Detailed information including this failover behavior change is now available online.

      The new iLink failover process will be available for customer testing in New Release in September.

      Further details on the launch schedule will be published in future CME Globex Notices.

      iLink and Drop Copy Enhancements for MDP 3.0 Trade Summary Message

      Starting Sunday, September 28 (trade date Monday, September 29), and following the production launch of MDP 3.0 channels, iLink will introduce opt-in functionality for displaying tag 37-OrderID in the MDP 3.0 trade summary message (tag 35-MsgType=X). Tag 37-OrderID is the anonymous, CME Globex-assigned order identifier.

      Customers may choose to opt-in their orders using the FPL-defined FIX tag 1091-PreTradeAnonymity. The Trade Summary message, which announces the trade to the marketplace, will include tag 37-OrderID values for orders where tag 1091=N. Tag 37-OrderID values will be published on market data for trades only.

      Drop Copy will also support the new tag 1091-PreTradeAnonymity at launch.

      The new iLink tag 1091-PreTradeAnonymity can be submitted on the following messages:

      • New Order (tag 35-MsgType=D)
      • Order Cancel/Replace Request(tag 35-MsgType=G)
      • New Order Cross (tag 35-MsgType=s)
      • Mass Quote (tag 35-MsgType=i)

      Tag 1091-PreTradeAnonymity will be returned on the following iLink messages only when a valid value is sent on the originating message:

      • Execution Report: Order Creation or Modify (tag 35-MsgType=8, OrdStatus=0 or 5)
      • Execution Report: Order Cancel(tag 35-MsgType=8, OrdStatus=4)
      • Execution Report: Fill Notice (tag 35-MsgType=8, tag 39-OrdStatus=1 or 2)
        • only for spreads and outrights
      • Execution Report: Order Elimination (tag 35-MsgType=8, tag 39-OrdStatus=4 or C)
      • Execution Report: Reject (tag 35-MsgType=8, tag 39-OrdStatus=8)
      • Order Cancel/Replace Reject (tag 35-MsgType=9, tag 434-CancelRejResponseTo=2)
      • Quote Acknowledgement (tag 35-MsgType=b)

      tag 1091-PreTradeAnonymity
      Tag FIX Name Req Valid Values Format Description
      1091 PreTradeAnonymity N Y
      N
      Boolean (1) Defines whether the tag 37-OrderID will be included in the Trade Summary message in MDP 3.0. If tag is not sent or sent with “Y”, tag 37-OrderID value will not appear in the Trade Summary message. If tag is sent with “N”, tag 37-OrderID will appear in the Trade Summary message.

      If the tag 1091-PreTradeAnonymity value exceeds the max length of 1 byte, New Orders and Order Cancel/Replace Requests will be rejected with a Session Level Reject (35=3) and Mass Quotes and New Order Cross will be rejected with a Business Level Reject message (35=j) with tag 380-BusinessRejectReason = 0. Any invalid value will be ignored and the tag 37-OrderID will not be displayed in the Trade Summary message.

      Current iLink message specifications are available online.

      Certification is not required for iLink and Drop Copy customers who wish to use the new opt-in tag 1091-PreTradeAnonymity. All customers are required to certify for and migrate to the new MDP 3.0.

      Tag 1091-PreTradeAnonymity is currently available for customer testing in New Release.

      Drop Copy 4.0 Implementation

      In Q1 2015, CME Group will introduce a new Drop Copy implementation to provide further consistency across iLink and Drop Copy. The new Drop Copy 4.0 implementation will have both functional and messaging changes as compared to the existing Drop Copy service.

      The new Drop Copy 4.0 implementations will include:

      • Harmonized customer experience between iLink and Drop Copy
      • New message format with encapsulated message type.
      • New supported FIX tags on Drop Copy messages – inbound and outbound
      • Harmonized resend behavior (elimination of Application Resend functionality to align with iLink)
      • Harmonized customer experience between iLink and Drop Copy
      • Sequencing by market segment (see: New iLink Architecture client impact assessment)
      • Robust fault tolerance

      The client impact assessment, functional specifications, and message specifications provide detailed functionality and messaging information.

      The existing implementation of Drop Copy will be phased out on a date to be published in the CME Globex Notices. All customers leveraging the Drop Copy service must be certified by that date.

      With the new implementation, the Drop Copy service will have a new session model where customers will have access to two types of target sessions:

      • Drop Copy Convenience Gateway (CGW) target session - consumers manage sequence streams from Convenience Gateway iLink source sessions across all market segments.
      • Drop Copy Market Segment Gateway target session – consumers manage sequence streams from Market Segment Gateway iLink source sessions per unique market segment; with the possibility of having the same sequence numbers from multiple market segments.

      To migrate to the new Drop Copy service, customers will be offered the ability to compare the new and the existing Drop Copy service implementations. Customers will be able to choose one Drop Copy Convenience Gateway (CGW) target session per Drop Copy group to compare it in parallel to a new Drop Copy group CGW target session. Customers need to coordinate migration efforts with their account manager to complete the full Drop Copy migration to the new Drop Copy Group(s). Customers can request Drop Copy CGW and/or Drop Copy MSGW target sessions.

      Certification and New Release Drop Copy sessions will be re-issued by your to Global Account Manager upon customer request.

      A new Drop Copy certification suite will be available in AutoCert+. Customer systems leveraging the Drop Copy service must complete this mandatory certification.

      Certification environments for customer testing will be available in Q4 2014.

      Please contact your Global Account Manager with any questions or concerns in the U.S. at +1 312 634 8700, in Europe at +44 203 379 3754 or in Asia at +65 6593 5505 for additional information.
