      iLink Mandatory Order Handling Flag: Tag 1031 - November 17

      Effective Sunday, November 17, 2019 (trade date Monday, November 18), in conjunction with the Futures Industry Association (FIA) Execution Code Schema initiative, CME Globex will require the current iLink FIX tag 1031-CustOrderHandlingInst on the following iLink messages.

      Tag 1031 must be submitted on the following messages:

      • New Order (tag 35-MsgType=D)
      • Order Cancel/Replace Request (tag 35-MsgType=G)
      • Mass Quote (tag 35-MsgType=i)

      Please Note: Tag 1031 will continue to be an optional tag on the New Order Cross (tag 35-MsgType=s) message.

      Tag 1031 will be returned on the following iLink messages:

      • Execution Report: Order Creation or Modify (tag 35-MsgType=8, OrdStatus=0 or 5)
      • Execution Report - Fill Notice (tag 35-MsgType=8, tag 39-OrdStatus=1 or 2)
      • Execution Report - Reject (tag 35-MsgType=8, tag 39-OrdStatus=8)
      • Execution Report - Order Cancel-Replace Reject (tag 35-MsgType=9)
      • Execution Report - Order Elimination (tag 35-MsgType=8, tag 39-OrdStatus=C, tag 150-ExecType=F
      • Quote Acknowledgment (tag 35-MsgType=b)
      • Business Level Reject (tag 35-MsgType=j)
      • Session Level Reject (tag 35=3)

      Tag 1031 must be populated by one of the following valid values:

      • W - Desk
      • Y - Electronic (Default)
      • C - Vendor-provided Platform billed by Executing Broker
      • G - Sponsored Access via Exchange API or FIX provided by Executing Broker
      • H - Premium Algorithmic Trading Provider billed by Executing Broker

      Learn more on the FIA guidelines on how to identify the source of any order:

      If you have any questions on tag 1031 values, please contact your clearing firm to determine which value to use.

      With this launch, CME Globex will validate tag 1031 on iLink messages.   Any iLink message submitted with an invalid  tag 1031 value will be rejected. CME Globex will send a reject message including the following tag 58=<Reject Reason>.

      Please Note: To reduce customer impact, resting Good ‘Till Cancel (GTC) and Good ‘Till Date (GTD) orders with missing or invalid tag 1031 will not be cancelled upon the production launch. Clients are encouraged to modify their resting GTC and GTD orders before the launch to add a valid tag 1031. This change will not impact the order’s priority. Effective with this launch, all Cancel/Replace messages, including those for resting GTC & GTD orders, must include a valid tag 1031.

      Decommission of Select ITC Market Data - November 22

      Effective at the close of business Friday, November 22, select ITC market data functions will be decommissioned in favor of an architecture that will support price decimals beyond 7 digits. As the result of the launch of SBE Settlements and Valuations and CME Reference Data API, many ITC data functions will become redundant and will be decommissioned.

      There will be a 6-month parallel period from the Settlements and Valuations production launch and decommission of select ITC market data. There will be the following ITC market data impacts:

      • NYMEX, COMEX and DME ITC channels will be eliminated
      • Futures and options settlements
      • Cleared volume and open interest
      • Cumulative volume
      • High/Low/Last prices
      • Fixing prices
      • Marker prices
      • Close prices
      • Net change
      • Lead month indicator
      • Contract specifications
      • Index prices

      Real-time trading floor data, such as trades, will continue to be disseminated on ITC channels for CME, CBOT, and MGEX.

      Please review the Client Impact Assessment for additional information and decommission schedules.

      NewNew - Original Client Order ID change on Cancel Request - Q4 2019

      Effective Q4 2019, to better align with FIX Protocol standards, CME Globex will remove FIX tag 41-OrigClOrdID validation from the Order Cancel Request (tag 35-MsgType=F) message. With this change, tag 41-OrigClOrdID will no longer be required on Order Cancel Request messages.

      This change will be available for customer testing in New Release on Tuesday, August 13.

      CME Globex Market Segment Gateway Enhancements  - January 26, 2020

      Starting Sunday, January 26, 2020 (trade date Monday, January 27), CME Group will introduce the following Market Segment Gateway (MSGW) enhancements to further safeguard CME Globex infrastructure.

      With this enhancement, if a Market Segment Gateway (MSGW) iLink session sends a network packet with an incomplete message, that session will be subject to additional processing to ensure the stability of the platform. This processing results in at least 3 microseconds before the message(s) can be sent to the trading engine.

      iLink messages impacted by this enhancement will be flagged in the corresponding Acknowledgment sent from CME Globex.

      Customers are strongly encouraged to ensure all messages are contained within a single network packet by the following methods:

      • Ensure any packet sent to CME group contains only complete messages
      • Limit the number of quote entries in a mass quote message that fits within a single TCP packet
      • Disable nagling, an algorithm that concatenates a number of small buffer messages to decrease the number of sent packets, on your order routing systems

      As a reminder, conduct that disrupts, delays, or overloads the systems or operations of the exchange may be deemed to violate Rule 575 (“Disruptive Practices Prohibited”) or other rules, including Rule 432.Q. (“General Offenses – to commit an act which is detrimental to the interest or welfare of the Exchange or to engage in any conduct which tends to impair the dignity or good name of the Exchange”). Rule 575 further provides that it is a violation to enter or cause to be entered an order where the intent at the time of order entry is to cancel the order before execution. It is also a violation of Rule 575 to intentionally or recklessly enter or cause to be entered an actionable or non-actionable message that may cause an adverse impact on the orderliness of the markets.

      Customers interested in finding out how MSGW enhancements would impact their iLink sessions should contact their Global Account Manager in the U.S. at +1 312 634 8700, in Europe at +44 203 379 3754 or in Asia at +65 6593 5505 for additional information.

      In internal testing, iLink round trip times at the 75th percentile and above increased at least 10%.

      Please review the Client Impact Assessment for additional information on these Market Segment Gateway enhancements.

      Staring on Monday, November 4, the CME Globex MSGW Enhancements will be available for customer testing in New Release. In addition, the new FIX tags for this enhancement will be available for customer testing in CME AutoCert+ Test Suite - MSGW Protection Enhancements. Certification is not required for these MSGW enhancements.

      Mock Trading Session:

      CME Group will offer two customer mock trading sessions on Saturday, December 14, 2019 and Saturday, January 25, 2020 to support customer experience with the MSGW enhancements in the CME Globex production environment. Customers are required to register in advance in order to participate in this mock trading session. The mock trading session script will be announced in future CME Globex Notices.
