Notes:

  1. "P" records specify the settlement currency in which prices for contracts in a particular product family are denominated, and provide additional values regarding price specifications and the conversion of quoted prices to contract values.
  2. PC-SPAN versions 3.11 and 3.12 will automatically read data from "P" records and update PC-SPAN's Commodity Master file.
  3. Currently supported values for product type code are FUT for futures, PHY for physicals, CMB for combinations, OOF for options on futures, OOP for options on physicals,  OOC for options on combinations, STOCK for stocks, DEBT for debt, and OOS for Options on Equities.
  4. Alignment codes provide values that code for particular non-decimal price formats and are currently used only for certain CBOT and Mid-Am products.
  5. The Contract Value Factor is the multiplier that converts an actual price -- one that has had its decimal point inserted and has been converted, if necessary, to a decimal value -- to the actual contract value.
  6. The standard cabinet option value is the value to be assigned to a "cabinet" trade if the value is not otherwise specified. The CBOT uses a refinement of this called "variable" cabinets in which the trade value is specified directly in the price field.
  7. The Quoted Position Quantity per Contract has a value of one in all cases except for certain CBOT grain products, and reflects the historical method of quoting a single position as a "five-lot".
  8. The Settlement Currency is the currency in which quoted settlement prices are denominated, and in which settlement variation or option premium are initially denominated. This is also in most cases the currency in which individual trade prices are denominated; at particular markets, however, it is possible for a trade price to be quoted in a different currency than the contract's settlement currency.
