In response to the June 30 Leap Second Event, CME Group strongly recommends CME STP customers finish their processing prior to 18:55 Central Time (CT) on this date and not access CME STP between 18:55 and 19:05.
CME Group uses Network Time Protocol (NTP) to synchronize time and maintain time accuracy. On Tuesday, June 30 (trade date Wednesday, July 1), a positive leap second will be added after 18:59:59 CT. A leap second is a one-second adjustment that is added to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) to account for variability of the earth’s rotation.
