CME Globex Reference Sheet
The CME Globex Reference spreadsheet provided by the Global Command Center (GCC) is updated regularly and provides the following information for each instrument tradable on CME Globex:
- Implied eligibility
- Price bands
- Protection Points
- Available spread types
- Maximum quantity - maximum quantity for order entry
- Symbol - instrument group code value for iLink FIX tag 55-Symbol
The product reference sheet provides both a master instrument list and separate instrument lists per product complex.
- The GCC may, in its sole discretion, temporarily expand certain risk parameters (e.g. price banding, Velocity Logic) to allow for periods of volatility, such as the release of significant economic numbers. The expanded parameters will revert to standard levels as soon as practicable following the event.
- Effective 08/10/2014* Velocity Logic price parameters are reduced by 50% during non-US trading hours (17:00-06:00 CT) as well as on US holidays, as determined by the GCC.
