CME Globex Market by Order (MBO) disseminates individual orders and quotes at every price level for the given instrument. MBO allows customers to view position(s) while preserving market participant anonymity.

CME Globex maintains the Market by Order (MBO) depth view with the following data blocks:

  • New - create/insert a new order (tag 37708-OrderUpdateAction=0 or tag 279-MDUpdateAction=0)
  • Update - change order information (tag 37708-OrderUpdateAction=1 or tag 279-MDUpdateAction=1)
  • Delete - remove an order (tag 37708-OrderUpdateAction=2 or tag 279-MDUpdateAction=2)

A book is built from a series of data blocks which indicate whether an order is to be inserted (New), changed (Update), or removed (Delete). The incremental instruction approach assumes the use of the Market Data Incremental Refresh (tag 35-MsgType=X) message

  • Order Priority (tag 37707-MDOrderPriority), from lowest to highest values, is used to position the order against other orders of the same instrument side, and price.
  • To build the full depth MBO order book, each order must be sorted by instrument side, and price (in descending order for Bids and ascending order for Asks). Then the order priority number must be applied only to the orders of the same price/ side.

In the example below, 37-OrderID 111 has a higher book priority (1) than OrderID 901 despite OrderID 901 having a lower tag 37707-MDOrderPriority value.

For tag 37707-MDOrderPriority, a lower value is a higher priority.

For MBO, there is no maximum number of orders or depth allowed on the book. All MBO book updates for an instrument within an event must be processed before the MBO book is valid.

MBO Order Priority is based on the sequence of iLink orders received by a CME Globex market segment (tag 1300-MarketSegmentID) and will be sent accordingly regardless of the match algorithm.  
Implied order book information is not sent in MBO format.

MBO Book Management Processing Examples

The following section shows examples using the MBO book update actions: new, update and delete.

Limit Order - New Action Example

This example shows a new limit bid order accepted and added to the first level of the book, since there are no resting bid orders.

Priority may not be sequential for tag 37707-MDOrderPriority outside of price (tag 270-MDEntryPx). Therefore, systems must first sort by price (tag 270-MDEntryPx), then by priority (tag 37707-MDOrderPriority) to determine the book order.

Modify Order - Update MBO Quantity of Resting Order Example

This example shows the update performed on an existing book when a an order modify is processed for MBO. The order will lose priority at the price level (950).

Priority may not be sequential for tag 37707-MDOrderPriority outside of price. Therefore, systems must first sort by price then by tag 37707-MDOrderPriority to determine priority.
