    • Effective Monday, May 1, 2017, to provide a more consistent and efficient experience, all Block trades and Exchange of Futures for Related Positions (EFRP) transactions must be submitted via CME Direct, CME ClearPort or CME ClearPort API.

      The CME Global Command Center (GCC) will no longer support stand-alone price reporting for CME or CBOT Blocks.

      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.

      GCC will continue to facilitate submission of transactions, which also fulfills the price reporting requirement, provided all Block or EFRP reporting accounts are registered in CME ClearPort and appropriate credit limits have been established by the FCM.

      Register for CME Direct or CME ClearPort today.
