Testing and Certification

Certification for BrokerTec U.S. Treasury Data is mandatory.

Customers can certify their applications using the BrokerTec U.S. Treasury Data test suite in Autocert+.

Market Data Technology Overview

This section provides an overview of the BrokerTec U.S. Treasury market data technology.

Simple Binary Encoding (SBE)

The BrokerTec U.S. Treasury market data channel uses compact Simple Binary Encoding (SBE) optimized for low latency of encoding and decoding while keeping bandwidth utilization reasonably small. Concise message sizes are used without the processing cost of compression. All FIX semantics are supported. The encoding standard is complimentary to other FIX standards for session protocol and application level behavior.

New customers developing to a non-Globex market data channel for the first time should familiarize themselves with MDP 3.0 - Simple Binary Encoding and MDP 3.0 - Message Schema topics.

Market Data Support Services

BrokerTec will use a separate Market Data Configuration Service, Incremental Schema Dissemination Service, and Global TCP Recovery Schema Dissemination Service. A separate schema and configuration file will be required for this channel and is available at ftp://ftp.cmegroup.com.

Market Data Services Architecture

BTEC MD Support Services

Market Data Configuration Service

Customers can obtain channel definitions, UDP configurations, and TCP Historical Replay configurations.  

Incremental Schema Dissemination Service

Customers can use the incremental schema dissemination service to obtain the Broker U.S. Treasury Data incremental message templates.

Global TCP Recovery Schema

BrokerTec U.S. Treasury Data utilize a separate schema dedicated to TCP recovery templates. However, client systems utilize the common replay component for the retrieval of actual messages.

FTP Locations

An FTP site (ftp://ftp.cmegroup.com) is used to disseminate schema and market data configuration information. This FTP site contains the Schema and Configuration files for all events. Schema and Market Data configuration details for the Production environment are only available to customers after the certification process is complete.

Incremental Book Management

For customers not familiar with Incremental Book Management, you should familiarize yourself with MDP 3.0 Market by Price Multiple Book Depth.

Client systems use the Market Data Incremental Refresh (tag 35-MsgType=X) message to update and maintain aggregate book depth, trades, and statistical data views with the following data blocks:

  • Add - create/insert a new price at a specified price level (tag 279 MDUpdateAction=0)
  • Change - change quantity for a price at a specified price level (tag 279 MDUpdateAction=1)
  • Delete - remove a price at a specified price level (tag 279 MDUpdateAction=2)

An Aggregate book is built from a series of data blocks which indicate whether an entry is to be inserted (Add), changed (Change), or removed (Delete). All data blocks are issued for a specified entry type (tag 269), price (tag 270), and price level (tag 1023).  

  • The 'Add' data block is sent if there is a new price level. Client systems should then shift price levels down and delete any price levels past the defined depth.
  • The 'Change' data block is sent to update characteristics of a price level without changing the price itself or impacting any other prices on the book. The 'Change' data block is sent to update the quantity for a price level per volume.
  • The 'Change' data block is not sent when the price changes at a given price level.
  • The  'Delete' data block is sent to remove a price level in the book. Client systems should shift prices below the data block up to the price level vacated by the deleted price level. If available, an add data block will be sent to fill in the last price level.

Recovery

Missed messages can be recovered using TCP Recovery or Natural Refresh.

Natural Refresh is not guaranteed and should not be considered a definitive substitute for recovering lost data.

The client system must track the state of the book at all times with the FIX Market Data Incremental Refresh message (tag 35-MsgType=X) book update data blocks. It is possible, though not guaranteed, that a set of these book update data blocks can be used to construct the current, correct state of a book without prior book state knowledge. While client systems wait for the recovery of missing data, they may opt to also use a natural refresh algorithm to recover book state prior to recovering the lost data. Natural refresh can also be used to re-instate the top-of-book. Prior to beginning a natural refresh, the entire book should be emptied. Natural refresh assumes no prior knowledge of book state.

TCP Recovery

The TCP historical replay component allows systems to request a replay of a set of messages already published on the UDP Incremental Market Data Channel. The request specifies messages to replay. 

Client systems will use the new Global TCP Replay Templates located at the new ftp location; however, client systems will utilize the common replay component for the retrieval of actual messages.

The request uses the SBE Market Data Request (tag 35-MsgType=V) message.

This type of request is sent through a new TCP connection established by client systems. The responses are sent by CME Group through this same connection and the connection is then closed by CME Group once the resend is complete. All responses are SBE encoded (including the reject response).

The TCP Replay feed supports the following FIX message formats:

  • Logon (tag 35-MsgType=A) - Customer to CME Group
  • Logout (tag 35-MsgType=5) - Customer to CME Group
  • FIX Market Data Request message (tag 35-MsgType=V).
  • CME Group to Customer, Heartbeat (tag 35-MsgType=0).

TCP Replay

The following restrictions apply when requesting messages via TCP Historical Replay:

  • A maximum of 2,000 messages can be requested per Market Data Request (35=V) message.
  • Only the current day's messages can be requested and resent.

Book Reset

BrokerTec U.S. Treasury Data is the only non-Globex market data channel to send Instrument level Book Reset (tag 35-MsgType=X, tag 55-Symbol, tag 269-MDEntryType=J) messages.

A Book Reset message (tag 35-MsgType=X, tag 55-Symbol, tag 269-MDEntryType=J) is an instruction to reset (empty) the book. A Book Reset message is sent for individual instrument books:

  • At system startup
  • In the event of a CME Group system failure or failover.

FIX Syntax for Intrument level Book Reset – Market Data Incremental Refresh (tag 35-MsgType=X)

  • Tag 55-Symbol
  • Tag 279-MDEntryAction=0 (New)
  • Tag 269-MDEntryType=J (Book Reset)

The following process is used on startup to ensure that all necessary market data is received:

  1. Download the configuration files and schema files from the ftp site. Refer to FTP Site Information Information for more information.
  2. Listen to the Incremental feed for incremental market data and start normal processing.
    • For products that support multilevel instrument books, the full state book (Top 5 levels) will be published only on startup or in the event of a CME Group system failure or failover.

CME Recommends client systems connect on Sunday Startup and stay connected throughout the week.

The book reset message will be followed by Incremental Refresh messages containing data blocks that are used to build and maintain the order book.
