      FIX/FAST Operators Release
       

      The life cycle of the FIX/FAST protocol, including streamlined FIX/FAST, is rapidly approaching its end as an industry standard in the United States. †The OPRA connected exchanges are eliminating FIX/FAST entirely by the end of this year. Given the increased availability of bandwidth as well as high speed connections such as co-location, compression has become less critical. In the short term, we are removing certain field operators (copy, default, delta and increment) from our data feed. In the longer term, CME Group continues to evaluate a next generation market data protocol.

      These operators will be removed from all production FIX/FAST and streamlined FIX/FAST channels on the Market Data Platform by Sunday, November 18, 2012. A detailed schedule of the remaining channels is now available  online.

      New templates will be required for the impacted channels. Per the normal process, the new templates are currently available on the CME Group ftp site for New Release and Production, along with the current and last generation templates. More information on template management is available in the  Client Systems Wiki.

      The current Production channels without operators will also be available in the Certification environment.

      Please Note: CME Group recommends customer systems pull the templates from the CME Group ftp site every week, prior to Sunday startup.

      These changes are currently available on all FIX/FAST channels in the New Release environment.

      As a result of this launch, bandwidth utilization over the Market Data Platform will ultimately increase. CME Group is contacting customers who may have over-subscription risk.

      †Please note: CME Group is not a member of the Options Pricing Reporting Authority (OPRA).


      New S&P Market Data Template
      Effective Saturday, November 17, S&P market data via streamlined FIX/FAST will utilize a new FIX/FAST template and source IPs due to CME Group maintenance.

      The new template and config.xml are currently available in New Release and Production environments.

      Please note: CME Group recommends customer systems pull the templates from the CME Group ftp site every week, prior to Sunday startup.

      New Functionality

      Dow Jones Indices via Streamlined FIX/FAST
      Starting on Saturday, November 17, 2012, CME Group will begin disseminating real-time Dow Jones Indices market data via streamlined FIX/FAST.

      Streamlined FIX/FAST is an optimized version of the FIX/FAST market data format for non-actionable price data. Streamlined FIX/FAST has a dedicated message specification distinct from the CME Globex FIX/FAST format and new templates. More information on streamlined FIX/FAST is available  online.

      On Friday, November 16, 2012, Security Definitions will be broadcast for Dow Jones Indices between 11:30 pm Central Time (CT) and 12:30 am CT. The Security Definitions for the Dow Jones Indices will be re-broadcast during the normal window on Saturday evening.

      Detailed information on enhanced Dow Jones Indices market data via streamlined FIX/FAST is available  Client Impact Assessment.

      Starting on Sunday, October 21, we will begin broadcasting heartbeats in the production environment for Market Data Platform (MDP) channel 151. In addition, the new template and the config.xml file will be available in production.

      Please Note: CME Group recommends all system providers supporting Dow Jones Indices market data to test these enhancements thoroughly in New Release and complete certification in AutoCert+.

      With this change, the dissemination of the 52-week high and lows index values for Dow Jones Indices will be discontinued. In addition, the announcement of new indices will be disseminated through News messages (tag 35-MsgType=B) only.

      As of Saturday, November 17, 2012, Dow Jones Indices market data will no longer be disseminated in ITC 2.1 format.


      Update Streamlined FIX/FAST – ERIS Exchange Swapbook 3.0 Upgrade
      Effective Sunday, December 2 (trade date Monday, December 3), CME Group will implement an upgrade to the ERIS Exchange market data in streamlined FIX/FAST. The ERIS Exchange Swapbook 3.0 upgrade will provide robust support for spread products and functionality.

      This upgrade will include new source IP address changes and templates. The new source IP address will be available in the config.xml from the  CME Group FTP site on Sunday, October 21, 2012. The new template will be available on November 4, 2012.

      With this upgrade, TCP Replay of Security Definitions functionality will be available for the ERIS Exchange. Detailed information for the ERIS Exchange market data upgrade is available  online.

      The ERIS Exchange market data upgrade will be available for customer testing in New Release on Monday, November 5, 2012.
