Due to market conditions in Wheat, beginning on Tuesday, February 12, 2008, and continuing until further notice, the closing range time period in the open outcry Wheat Futures market will change from 30 seconds to one minute. The close will therefore begin at 1:14 p.m.
Further, the Wheat Futures Pit Committee will continue to be able to extend the close by up to one minute due to unique market conditions on a particular trade date. The decision to extend a close must be communicated to the market at least five minutes prior to the commencement of the revised close for that date. However, the Exchange will endeavor to communicate this information to the market as soon as possible.
