* For CME Globex trading, automated price banding prevents execution of orders at prices falling outside of the last sale, best bid or best offer and ± the price band. Price banding prevents the entry of limit orders more than a pre-determined amount above the last price in the case of bids and more than the same predetermined amount below the last price in the case of offers. The band “shadows” the last foreign exchange futures price as it reacts to new transaction prices, higher bids and lower offers.
