Block Trades & EFRPs have changed

From Monday, July 17, if you currently transact or broker Block Trades or Exchange of Futures for Related Positions (EFRPs), please contact your exchange clearing member firm or broker to ensure that you are ready for the planned migration of Block Trade and EFRP trade submission to CME Direct or CME ClearPort.

Confirm your accounts are registered in CME Direct or CME ClearPort, credit limits are established and you or your clients have appropriate product permissions in place. Additionally, all brokers that execute on your behalf must be enabled with access to your account(s). CME Direct and CME ClearPort currently support submission of all Block Trades and EFRPs, and we strongly encourage you to migrate your trade activity well in advance of the deadline.

Effective Monday, July 17, 2017, all Block Trades and Exchange of Futures for Related Positions (EFRPs) transactions must be submitted via CME Direct or CME ClearPort. At the close of business on Friday, July 14, Front-End Clearing (FEC) and Front-End Clearing Plus (FEC+) will no longer support any Block or Exchange of Futures for Related Positions (EFRP) trade reporting or booking.
