iLink 3 allows customers to optimize business message construction by pre-registering administrative information, or by submitting administrative information per message (on-demand) as follows.

  • Pre-registered administrative information
    • for most efficient business messaging (i.e New Order Single, Mass Quote), customers pre-register administrative information in the new Service Gateway weekly.
Full iLink 3 certification is required for customers to add this pre-registered administrative information functionality into their systems.


  • On-demand administrative information
    • customers send the administrative information to MSGW with every business message.

iLink 3 business messages always include a reference to the pre-registered or on-demand administrative information.

Administrative information includes: 

  • Information required to accept and match the order on the central limit order book 
    • tag 2362-SelfMatchPreventionID 
    • tag 8000-SelfMatchPreventionInstruction 
  • Information required to clear the trade 
    • tag 1031-CustOrdHandlIngInst
    • tag 1731-AveragePriceGroupID 
    • tag 819-AveragePriceIndicator 
    • tag 1598-ClearingTradePrice
    • tag 9708-CmtaGiveUpCD 
    • tag 5149-Memo 

  • Information required for market regulation compliance 
    • tag 1693-PartyDetailRole=96 (take up firm)
    • tag 1693-PartyDetailRole=1000 (take up account)
    • tag 1693-PartyDetailRole=1 (executing firm)

Order Entry Service Gateway

There will be a new Order Entry Service Gateway (OESGW) for customers to register administrative information.

For the OESGW:

  • No new session will be required; customers can use the same MSGW session to connect.
  • The Service Gateway supports FIXP Party Detail Request messages only; any other messages will be rejected.

Customers will be able to use the same MSGW session to connect to the Service Gateway using FIXP protocol, and submit Party Details Definition Request messages and Party Details List Request messages.

OESGW - SFTP Site Information 

The OESGW configuration information (i.e. market segments and IPs) will be added to the MSGW config file via an SFTP site (sftpng.cmegroup.com) and accessed via a CME Globex network direct connection. This SFTP site contains the configuration files for all environments. The SFTP site is a secure site that requires a user name and password for access.

New Market Segment is defined for each OESGW  as follows:

  • Environment - specific environment (i.e. Certification, New Release, Production).

   Note: the AutoCert+ tool will use the NR MSGW config file.

  • Service - the Configuration service.
  • SFTP Site - address of SFTP site.
  • User Name - identifies the user name.
  • Password - identifies the password.
  • Directory Location - identifies the directory.

Party Details Definition Messaging

This section describes message processing for customers pre-registering administrative information

Party Details Definition Request

The new Party Details Definition Request message (tag 35-MsgType=CX) defines all customer administrative information i.e. clearing instructions, order source, self match parameters, etc.  The Party Details Definition Request message can be sent  to both Service Gateway and MSGW.   

Pre-register administrative information in the new Service Gateway

  • Customer sends Party Details Definition Request to the new Service Gateway beforehand (recommend beginning of the week on Sunday) with unique value in Party Details List RequestID (duplicate values will be rejected for that FirmID).
    • Party Detail Definitions are valid only for the week and must be resubmitted at the start of each week on Sunday
    • Customer assigns tag 1505-PartyDetailsListRequestID when submitting the Party Details Definition Request message to CME
      • A single tag 1505-PartyDetailsListRequestID is able to use across all  MSGW instances.
      • Tag 1505-PartyDetailsListRequestID cannot be equal to 0 when pre-registering administrative information on the Service Gateway
    • Modification and Deletion of existing Party Details Definition messages are not allowed
  • Customer receives Party Details Definition Request Ack Message (tag 35-MsgType=CYand can cross-reference tag 1505-PartyDetailsListRequestID in any subsequent business message sent to MSGW.
    • Any business message sent with an unknown or invalid tag 1505-PartyDetailsList RequestID will be rejected 
    • There will be a limit of 2500 Party Detail Definition combinations allowed for each FirmID beyond which further submissions will be rejected

On-demand administrative information to MSGW

  • If the customer opts not to pre-register their administrative information, they MUST send a Party Details Definition Request message directly preceding each business message 
  • The Party Details Definition Request MUST have tag 1505-PartyDetailsListRequestID=0, else it will be rejected
  • Deletions of Party Details Definition messages are not available, since they are for single use only
  • There will be no limit on the number of Party Detail Definition combinations allowed for each FirmID.

With on-demand administrative information, the Party Detail Definition Request message sent directly preceding each business message will be counted towards the messaging thresholds. More information on iLink 3 Messaging Controls is available in the Client Systems Wiki.

PartyDetailsDefinitionRequest + New Order

Example -  Customers submit orders to MSGW:

When the customer submits Good ‘Till Cancel (GTC) and/or Good ‘Till Date (GTD) orders using the pre-registered administrative information, CME Globex will respond with: 

  • the Execution Report - Confirmation/Acknowledgment (tag 35 - MsgType=8) for the current week
  • the Party Details Definition Request Acknowledgment message before every Execution Report - Confirmation/Acknowledgment (tag 35 - MsgType=8) for the following weeks

This is applied to Order Status Request and Mass Order Status Request for GTC/GTD orders as well. 

For example: 

Week1 

  • Customer sends GTC orders using the pre-registered administrative information with tag 1505-PartyDetailsListRequestID=1 for Account=123
  • CME returns ExecutionReport - New Order with tag 1505-PartyDetailsListRequestID=1

Week2 

  • Customer sends Party Details Definition Request to the new Service Gateway with tag 1505-PartyDetailsList RequestID=1 for Account = 456
  • CME returns the subsequent fill: Party Details Definition Request Ack with tag 1505-PartyDetailsListRequestID=0 + ExecutionReport - Trade with tag 1505-PartyDetailsListRequestID=0 

For unsolicited quote cancels:

CME Globex will return the Party Details Definition Request Acknowledgment message with tag 1505-PartyDetailsListRequestID=0 before every Quote Cancel Acknowledgment message (tag 35-MsgType = b, tag 297-QuoteStatu= 1,3,4,100

This is applied to unsolicited cancels from CME One (tag 378-ExecRestatementReason=105)

For the New Order Cross: 

Pre-registered party information – Client registers party information in the Service Gateway in advance; in the New Order Cross message, the client identifies the party detail ID for each side in tag 1505-PartyDetailsListReqID.

On-demand party information – to submit a Cross, send the following messages to the MSGW:

The New Order Cross message will not be sent to the trading engine until the second Party Details Definition is processed by the Market Segment Gateway.

Party Details Message Sequence

The process for pre-registering administrative information in the new Service Gateway and submitting business messages to MSGW is shown below.

PartyDetails

On-Demand Messaging Scenarios

For non–pre-registered clients, message processing follows the sequence shown in the following scenarios.

On Demand - Accepted

In this scenario the Party Details Request message is submitted and accepted prior to the New Order - Single message is submitted and accepted. Upon acceptance of the New Order -Single message, CME Globex sends the Party Definition Request Acknowledgment then the Execution Report - New Order messages.

Long Form New Order Example

On-Demand Party Details Request Accepted, New Order Rejected

In this scenario the Party Details Request message is accepted but the subsequent New Order -Single rejected with a Business Reject message.

Long Form PDR Accept New Order Reject

On-Demand Party Details Definition Request - Message Out of Sequence

In this scenario the Party Details Definition Request is submitted with a higher than expected sequence number.

Long Form MsgSeqNum higher

On-Demand New Order - Invalid Party Details ID

In this scenario a New Order message is submitted with the PartyDetailListReqID not equal to zero.

Long Form Invalid PDI

Pre-Registered Messaging Scenarios

Pre-Registered Party Details Definition Request - Message Out of Sequence

In this scenario the Party Details Definition Request is submitted with a higher than expected sequence number.

PartyDetailsDefinitionRequest PreRegistered Higher Sequence

Pre-Registered New Order - Invalid Party Details ID

In this scenario a New Order message is submitted with the PartyDetailListReqID not equal to zero.

Short Form Invalid PDI

Party Details List Request

The new Party Details List Request message (tag 35-MsgType=CF) is used to request all of the Party Details Definition information for a particular Firm ID.

  • Party Details List Request message should be sent only to the Service Gateway
  • Party Details List Request message can be used to request all Party Details Definitions for a firm or specific Party Details Definitions belonging to that firm 
  • Customers can submit a Party Details List Request message and receive the Party Details List Report message (tag 35-MsgType=CG) detailing active Party Detail Definitions.
  • The Party Details List Request message should be used in these circumstances:
    • To confirm submission of Party Details Definition messages sent earlier to the Service Gateway. This can be done:
      • Sunday at the beginning of the week before the start of trading but after Party Details Definition messages have been sent earlier in the day
      • Before the start of each trading session
      • After the close of each trading session
      • Anytime there is a need to confirm which Party Details Definitions have been registered with CME
  • There are two types of the Party Details List request:
    1.  by Executing Firm - Request all Party Details for a single firm using tag 1657- NoRequestingPartyIDs repeating group
    2.  by PartyID - Request specific Party Details  using tag 453-NoPartyIDs repeating group
Customers can submit a Party Details List Request message either by Executing Firm or PartyID.  Both types cannot be presented in the same Party Details List request message.

Drop Copy message payloads will have full details of both administrative and business information regardless if the party details were pre-registered or sent prior to the business message, e.g. New Order Single, Order Cancel Replace Request, etc.

Each Party Details List RequestID will be unique per firm. If a firm is hosted on more than one session, the same Party Details List Request ID can be used across all sessions.

For Example: Executing Firm="123" is hosted both Session ID = "ABC" and  Session  ID = "XYZ".  PartyDetailsListRequestID = "1001", created by session ABC,  can be used on both sessions

All tags in Party Details Definition may not be applicable to all messages; for example:

  • tag 2362-SelfMatchPreventionID is not applicable for cross orders, and account number is not applicable for Mass Quote Cancels
  • tag 8000-SelfMatchPreventionInstruction does not apply for Mass Quote 

Restrictions

Because Party Details are associated with the CME Globex Firm ID (GFID) and not individual sessions:

  • A GFID cannot support duplicate Party Detail ID  (i.e. tag 1505-PartyDetailsListRequestID)
  • GFIDs that share a session cannot use the same Party Detail ID (i.e. tag 1505-PartyDetailsListRequestID)

iLink 3 Order Types and Order Type Qualifiers

For iLink 3 order entry, the following order types and order type qualifiers are supported:

Order Types (tag 40-OrderType)

  • OrderType=1 (Market order with protection)
  • OrderType=2 (Limit order)
  • OrderType=3 (Stop order with protection)
  • OrderType=4 (Stop limit order)
  • OrderType=K (Market limit order)

Order Type Qualifiers
