Starting Sunday, January 7, 2024, EBS Market on CME Globex will introduce the new Conditional Price Increments (CPI) for select Spot instruments. CPI enables submission of  "sub-pip" prices in applicable EBS products subject to pre-defined conditions and requirements being satisfied as orders arrive at the matching engine.

EBS CPI is beneficial in that it maintains primary order placement and liquidity consolidation at established EBS Market price points and conditionally allows flexibility when improving Top of Book (TOB), which enhances liquidity and market data quality. 

Orders using the CPI sub-pip price increments may be subject to a different Minimum Quote Life (MQL) duration, which is defined in the new tag 37739-AltMinQuoteLfe in the MDP 3.0 Security Definition message.

Summary of Impacts

With the introduction of EBS CPI, the following features and message functionality will be impacted:

  • New Alternate Globex Minimum Tick in addition to the current Standard Globex Minimum Tick for EBS Market products.
  • New product attributes in the Reference Data API, Reference Data Warehouse, and in the MDP 3.0 Security Definition for:
    • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick (i.e., sub-pip)
    • Alternate Price Increment Constraint (i.e., a defined minimum number of sub-pips)
    • Maximum Bid/Ask Constraint
    • Alternate Minimum Quote Life
  • New iLink Reject Codes and Reject Text for orders rejected due to Conditional Price Increments.
  • Different Minimum Quote Life (MQL) values for orders that use the Alternate Globex Minimum Tick, as opposed to orders that use the Standard Globex Minimum Tick.
  • Price Discretion (PD) orders will support Alternate Globex Minimum Tick values on PD field to allow interaction with the incoming sub-pip orders.

Product Availability

Conditional Price Increments will be available for the following EBS products.

Alternate Globex Minimum Tick

With this launch, CME Globex will introduce the new Alternate Globex Minimum Tick in addition to the current Standard Globex Minimum Tick for EBS Market products. The Standard Globex Minimum Tick must be divisible by the Alternate Globex Minimum Tick

For example, Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005, Alternate Globex Minimum Tick =0.000025

  • Standard Globex Minimum Tick is always used for order submission.
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick is only available for order entry when the following conditions are met:

No.

ConditionsClient UseExample
1

Max Bid/Ask Constraint

Maximum Bid/Ask spread for which Alternate Globex Minimum Tick orders will be accepted (Sub Tick orders will be rejected if Bid/Ask spread is greater than this value).TOB spread in 
EUR/USD must be <= 1.5 pip

2

Alternate Globex Tick Constraint

Minimum price offset better than the best Standard Globex Minimum Tick order for an order to be allowed into the market.Improve best half or full 
pip Bid/Ask by at least 0.2 pips.


Note: An Alternate Globex Tick of Null is interpreted as not allowing Alternate Globex Minimum Tick. Any values for Alternate Globex Tick Constraint, CLOB Spread Constraint, and Alternate Minimum Quote Life should be ignored.


Note: EBS CPI has no impacts to Latency Floor.

Minimum Quote Life Change

There will be different Minimum Quote Life (MQL) duration for orders that use the Alternate Globex Minimum Tick, as opposed to orders that have the Standard Globex Minimum Tick.   

For example: 100 ms MQL on sub pip orders

  1. Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005 (Current)

  2. Minimum Quote Life = 20 ms  (Current)

  3. Alternate Globex Minimum Tick = 0.000025 (New)

  4. Alternate Minimum Quote Life = 100 ms (New)

The MQL timer is defined for each eligible product individually and communicated via the MDP 3 Security Definition and Reference Data API v3.

Note

  • Alternate Globex Tick Constraint of Null is interpreted as allowing orders to use any Alternate Globex Tick, even at the prices that are not better than the best Standard Globex Minimum Tick order.  
  • Max Bid/Ask Constraint Constraint of Null is interpreted as always allowing Alternate Globex Tick orders, subject to the Alternate Globex Tick Constraint setting.

EBS CPI Example Values

Standard Globex Minimum Tick
  • Current product tick value.
  • Example:
    • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
Alternate Globex Minimum Tick (NEW)
  • A tick value that is more granular relative to the existing Standard Globex Minimum Tick.
    • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
    • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick= 0.000025

Note:

  • The Alternate Globex Minimum Tick must be a multiple of the Standard Globex Minimum Tick.
  • The Standard Globex Minimum Tick must always be larger than the Alternate Globex Min Tick.

Max Bid/Ask Constraint (NEW)

  • The Max Bid/Ask Constraint value is an input into a process that compares the best resting limit order bid/ask spread value relative to this product setting.
    • If the Max Bid/Ask value result > Max Bid/Ask Constraint (i.e., bid/ask spread is too wide), then the incoming order cannot use an Alternate Globex Minimum Tick.
    • If the Max Bid/Ask Constraint result < or = Max Bid/Ask Constraint (i.e., bid/ask spread is sufficiently narrow), then the incoming order can potentially use an Alternate Globex Minimum Tick provided it passes a subsequent - Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint process.
  • Example:
    • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
    • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick= 0.00001
    • Max Bid/Ask Constraint = 0.00015
    • Current Best Bid 0.97345 / Current Best Ask 0.97359
    • Max Bid/Ask Constraint of 0.00015 is compared against 0.00014, which is the Max Bid/Ask value result – Passes as 0.00014 is <=0.00015.

      Note: The incoming order can potentially use an Alternate Globex Minimum Tick provided it passes a subsequent Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint process.

Alternate Globex Tick Constraint (NEW) 
  • The Alternate Globex Tick Constraint process occurs after the Max Bid/Ask Constraint process.
  • The Alternate Globex Tick Constraint value is an input to a Globex process that initially determines the Order Tick Difference result between the Standard Globex Minimum Tick Limit price of the best resting order that is on the same side as the incoming order relative to the Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Limit price of the incoming order.
  • The Order Tick Difference Result, in turn, is compared against the Alternate Globex Tick Constraint.
    • If the Order Tick Difference Result is > or = Alternate Globex Tick Constraint, then the order can use the Alternate Globex Minimum Tick.
    • If the Order Tick Difference Result is < Alternate Globex Tick Constraint, then the order cannot use the Alternate Globex Minimum Tick.
  • Example:
    • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
    • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick= 0.00001
    • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint = 0.00002
    • 0.00003 = Order Tick Difference Result between best Standard Globex Minimum Tick resting order that is on the same side as the incoming order relative to the Alternate Globex Minimum Tick incoming order.
    • Since Order Tick Difference Result of 0.00003 is > 0.00002 Alternate Globex Tick Constraint, then the incoming order can use the Alternate Globex Minimum Tick.

EBS CPI Requirements

Good For Session (GFS) order can be accepted on an Alternate Globex Minimum Tick in conditions when meeting the CPI requirements:

  • Max Bid/Ask Constraints
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraints 

Once a GFS order is accepted at an Alternate Globex Minimum Tick level, it can remain at that price even if a new best Standard Globex Minimum Tick Price has been established.

A Fill and Kill/Fill or Kill (FAK/FOK) order can be submitted at any Alternate Globex Minimum Tick or the Standard Globex Minimum Tick and match against any resting orders at any eligible price levels.

Note: Price Banding will continue to be supported for EBS Market and not changed by the CPI requirements.

Max Bid/Ask Constraint

The Max Bid/Ask Constraint value is an input into a process that compares the best overall limit order bid/ask spread value relative to this product setting. 

  • If the Max Bid/Ask value result > Max Bid/Ask Constraint, then the incoming order cannot use an Alternate Globex Minimum Tick.
  • If the Max Bid/Ask Constraint result < or = Max Bid/Ask Constraint, then the incoming order can potentially use an Alternate Globex Minimum Tick provided it passes a subsequent Alternate Globex Tick Constraints process.

Example 1 - Accepted Bid

GivenResult
  • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick= 0.000025
  • Max Bid/Ask Constraint = 0.00015
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint = 0.000025

Incoming bid HHH is accepted as Max Bid/Ask value  0.00015 (0.97360-0.97345) is equal to Max Bid/Ask Constraint, and it passes a subsequent Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint.

Max Bid-Ask Constraint - Example 1

Example 2 - Rejected Bid

GivenResult
  • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick= 0.000025
  • Max Bid/Ask Constraint = 0.00015
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint = 0.000025
Incoming bid HHH is rejected as Max Bid/Ask value (0.00020) is not less than or equal to Max Bid/Ask Constraint (0.00015).

Max Bid-Ask Constraint - Example 2

Example 3 - Accepted Bid

GivenResult
  • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick= 0.000025
  • Max Bid/Ask Constraint = 0.00015
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint = 0.000025
Incoming bid HHH is accepted as the price (0.97345) is on Standard Globex Minimum Tick; Max Bid/Ask Constraint is irrelevant.

Max Bid-Ask Constraint - Example 3

Example 4 - Rejected Bid

GivenResult
  • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick= 0.000025
  • Max Bid/Ask Constraint = 0.00015
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint = 0.000025
Incoming bid HHH is rejected as Max Bid/Ask Constraint not met because of empty book on the bid side.

Max Bid-Ask Constraint - Example 4

Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint

If the Max Bid/Ask Constraint is met, the next validation for an incoming order to be accepted on an Alternate Globex Tick is to pass the Alternate Globex Tick Constraint.

The Alternate Globex Tick Constraint value is an input into a process that initially determines the Order Tick Difference result between the Standard Globex Minimum Tick Limit price of the best resting order that is on the same side as the incoming order relative to the Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Limit price of the incoming order. The Order Tick Difference Result, in turn, is compared against the Alternate Globex Tick Constraint.

  • If the Order Tick Difference Result is > or = Alternate Globex Tick Constraint, then the order can use the Alternate Globex Minimum Tick.
  • If the Order Tick Difference Result is < Alternate Globex Tick Constraint, then the order cannot use the Alternate Globex Minimum Tick.

Example 5 - Accepted Bid

GivenResult
  • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick= 0.000025
  • Max Bid/Ask Constraint = 0.00015
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint = 0.000025
Incoming bid HHH is accepted since Max Bid/Ask Constraint is met and Order Tick Difference Result 0.000025 (0.973475 - 0.97345) is equal to Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint. 

Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint - Example 5

Example 6 - Rejected Bid

GivenResult
  • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick= 0.000025
  • Max Bid/Ask Constraint = 0.00015
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint = 0.000025
Incoming bid HHH is rejected since Max Bid/Ask Constraint is met, but Order Tick Difference Result -0.000025 (0.973425 - 0.97345) is less than Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint.

Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint - Example 6

Example 7 - Accepted Bid

GivenResult
  • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick= 0.000025
  • Max Bid/Ask Constraint = 0.00015
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint = 0.000025

Incoming bid HHH is accepted since Max Bid/Ask Constraint is met and Order Tick Difference Result 0.000025 (0.973475 - 0.97345) is equal to Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint.

Note: Order Tick Difference Result is calculated as the difference between the incoming order price and the best Standard Globex Minimum Tick Limit price, not the best price overall.

Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint - Example 7

Example 8 - Rejected Bid

GivenResult
  • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick= 0.000025
  • Max Bid/Ask Constraint = 0.00015
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint = 0.00005 
Incoming bid HHH is rejected since Max Bid/Ask Constraint is met, but Order Tick Difference Result 0.000025 (0.973475 - 0.97345) is less than the Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint (0.00005).

Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint - Example 8

Example 9 - Accepted Bid

GivenResult
  • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick= 0.000025
  • Max Bid/Ask Constraint = 0.00015
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint = 0.000025

Incoming bid HHH is accepted since Max Bid/Ask Constraint is met and Order Tick Difference Result 0.000075 (0.973475 - 0.97340) is greater than Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint.

Note: In this example, the resting order DDD at 0.97340 is still the best Standard Globex Minimum Tick Limit price since no resting bids exists at the 0.97345 price.

Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint - Example 9

EBS CPI Exceptions

The new Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Orders can be accepted in conditions that would normally not meet the CPI requirements (i.e., Max Bid/Ask and/or Alternate Globex Tick Constraints).

  1. Trade Exception
  2. Crossing Top of Book Exception
  3. Join Exception

Trade Exception

A GFS order can be accepted on an Alternate Globex Minimum Tick if the order can potentially match on Limit Price against the opposite side of book before it rests.

Example 10 - Accepted Bid

GivenResult
  • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick= 0.00001
  • Max Bid/Ask Constraint = 0.00015
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint = 0.00002
  • Incoming bid HHH is accepted and matched resting ask EEE at price 0.97346 - Match 4 @ 0.97346.
  • Remaining order quantity (1) can rest in the market even though it violates the CPI requirements; i.e., Order Tick Difference Result 0.00001 (0.97346 - 0.97345) is less than Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint (0.00002).

EBS CPI Exceptions - Example 10

Crossing Top of Book Exception

If an order crosses the opposite top of book (i.e., a bid with a limit price >= best offer, or an offer with a limit price <= best bid) but it cannot match with the resting orders on the other side due to bilateral credit or Self Match Prevention (SMP),  the order can still be accepted on an Alternate Globex Minimum Tick and rest in the market, even if the CPI requirements are not met.

Example 11 - Accepted Bid

GivenResult
  • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick= 0.00001
  • Max Bid/Ask Constraint = 0.00015
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint = 0.00002
  • HHH does not have bilateral credit with EEE
Incoming bid HHH is accepted for crossing the top of book and resting in a crossed market even though the Max Bid/Ask Constraint has been exceeded.

EBS CPI Exceptions - Example 11

Join Exception

A GFS order can be accepted on an Alternate Globex Minimum Tick if the order joins an existing price level (at least one resting order exists at that price) on the order book based on the limit price.

Note: The join exception applies to any bid or offer price and does not only apply to the best bid/best offer in the market.

Example 12 - Accepted Bid

GivenResult
  • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick= 0.00001
  • Max Bid/Ask Constraint = 0.00015
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint = 0.00002
Incoming bid HHH is accepted due to joining an existing price level, even though the Max Bid/Ask value 0.00025 (0.97373 - 0.97348) is greater than the Max Bid/Ask Constraint (0.00015).

EBS CPI Exceptions - Example 12

Example 13 - Accepted Bid

GivenResult
  • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick= 0.00001
  • Max Bid/Ask Constraint = 0.00015
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint = 0.00002

Incoming bid HHH is accepted due to joining an existing price level, even though the Order Tick Difference Result 0.00001 (0.97346 - 0.97345) is less than Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint (0.00002).

EBS CPI Exceptions - Example 13

NoteOnce a GFS order is accepted at an Alternate Globex Minimum Tick price, it can remain at that price even if a new best Standard Minimum Tick price has been established.

Display Quantity Orders

Display Quantity Orders must still follow the rules above for Conditional Price Increments on initial order entry.

Note: Display quantity orders are not re-assessed for compliance with the CPI requirements on quantity refreshes.

Price Discretion Orders

Price Discretion Orders (PD) will support Alternate Globex Minimum Tick on the PD values (tag 845-DiscretionPrice) to allow interaction with incoming Alternate Globex Minimum Tick orders.

  1. PD orders must still comply with the CPI requirements by comparison of the order's Limit Price with the CPI requirements (i.e., Max Bid/Ask constraint and Alternate Globex Tick constraint must be met).
  2. PD prices at the Alternate Globex Minimum Tick are still subject to the Max Price Discretion Offset from limit order price (e.g., 0.00030 for EUR/USD).
  3. PD prices are not subject to the CPI requirements (i.e., Max Bid/Ask constraint and Alternate Globex Tick constraint do not have to be met for the PD price to use the Alternate Globex Minimum Tick)
  4. Trade Exception for CPI does not apply to PD matches, either for incoming PD to resting limit price or PD to PD matches.

Example 14 - Rejected Bid

GivenResult
  • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00001
  • Max Price Discretion Offset = 0.00030
  • Max Bid/Ask Constraint = 0.00015
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint = 0.00002
Incoming PD HHH is rejected since the limit price (0.97346) is not better than the best Standard Globex Minimum Tick price (0.97345) by the Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint Amount (0.00002) or more, even though the PD price (0.97348) is higher.

Price Discretion Orders - Example 14

Example 15 - Rejected Bid

GivenResult
  • Standard Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00005
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick = 0.00001
  • Max Price Discretion Offset = 0.00030
  • Max Bid/Ask Constraint = 0.00015
  • Alternate Globex Minimum Tick Constraint = 0.00002
Incoming PD bid HHH is rejected since it cannot match with PD ask EEE at 0.97348 since PD matches are not subjected to CPI Trade Exception.

Example 15

Order Modifications

Once a GFS order is accepted at an Alternate Globex Minimum Tick level, Order Modifications are allowed at that price even if a new best Standard Globex Minimum Tick price has been established as long as the modification is not to the order limit price. 

  • Order Modifications that do not modify the price are not re-assessed for compliance with the CPI requirements.
  • Order Modifications to the Limit Price must be re-assessed for compliance with the CPI requirements.
    • Order Modifications that are not in compliance with the CPI requirements will be rejected, and the order will remain as-is.

Note: Order Modifications still under the MQL interval, will have the CPI validations done at the end of the MQL time limit, and a Pending Cancel/Replace could be rejected once the MQL interval is over.

The CPI requirements must be validated based on the current state of the market at the time of order receipt by the matching engine.  Because of conflated and/or credit screened market data, individual participants may have a view of certain conditions which impacts these requirements that is different from the state of the overall market.

Regardless of whether the prices are on the Standard Globex Minimum Tick or the Alternate Globex Minimum Tick: 

  • All resting order prices (EBS credit screened, unscreened, best bid/ask, etc.) will continue to be price reported in all relevant formats.
  • All trades must be price reported in all formats (including EBS Ticker, EBS Spectrum) at the actual trade prices.


Note: For EBS Spectrum TWAP/VWAP messages, CME Globex will round the averages to the precision disseminated on the security definition, which must also be adjusted to match the precision of Alternate Globex Minimum Tick.

iLink 3 Order Entry 

Orders with an Alternate Globex Minimum Tick price that do not meet CPI requirements upon reaching the match engine will be rejected for invalid Alternate Globex Minimum Tick order. CME Globex will send the Execution Report - Reject (tag 35-MsgType=8, tag 39-OrdStatus=8, tag 103- OrdRejReason) with the new reject codes:

Execution Report - Reject (tag 35-MsgType=8, tag 39-OrdStatus=8, tag 103-OrdRejReason)
