    • Effective with the listing of the September 2019 quarterly options, these CME FX options will reflect the following changes:

      • Expiration time will be 9:00 am Central Time (CT). Currently, these options expire at 2:00 pm CT.
      • Exercise will use the 9:00 am CT fixing price instead of the 2:00 pm fixing price.

      These changes will be in effect for all option instruments that expire after Sunday, June 9, 2019. Currently listed instruments, and any instruments that expire before June 9, 2019, will continue to use the 2:00 pm expiration and 2:00 pm fixing price for exercise.

      The instrument last trade date and time can be found by leveraging FIX tags 865=7 (Last eligible trade date) and 1145-EventTime in the Security Definition (tag 35-MsgType=d) message.

      The Fixing Price data blocks are sent in the MDP 3.0 Market Data Incremental Refresh (tag 35-MsgType=X) with the following attributes:

      • Tag 279- MDUpdateAction=0 (New)
      • Tag 269-MDEntryType=W (Fixing Price)
      • Tag 270-MDEntryPX = Price of the MD Entry (This value will contain the fixing price).
      • Tag 5796-Trading Reference will display the date for which the fixing price was calculated.

      This change will be available for customer testing in New Release on Monday, August 26.

      These contracts are listed with, and subject to, the rules and regulations of CME.
