CME ClearPort API

CME ClearPort API

The CME ClearPort Application Programming Interface (API) offers a robust set of functions which allow customers to submit to CME ClearPort through their own proprietary trading software.

The API provides support for a broad set of derivatives in various asset classes (Energy, Metals, Ags, Interest Rates, FX) across many CME Group product exchanges (NYMEX, COMEX, DME, CME, and CBOT).

Note: Trades submitted via the CME ClearPort API are subject to the same rules, restrictions, and validations that regulate the acceptance or rejection of transactions manually entered through the web-based CME ClearPort® Clearing User Interface (UI).
