    • CME Group Inc. ("CME Group") sets the fee policies for its four subsidiary exchanges - Chicago Mercantile Exchange Inc. ("CME"), Chicago Board of Trade, Inc. ("CBOT"), New York Mercantile Exchange, Inc. ("NYMEX") and Commodity Exchange, Inc. ("COMEX"). In response to market participant feedback, CME Group is enhancing and clarifying documentation of, and where possible harmonizing, its fee policies for CME, CBOT, NYMEX and COMEX.

      In February 2007, CME issued Fee Policy Bulletin ("FPB") #07-01 concerning Clearing and Globex Fees. CME Group is issuing this FPB to enunciate CME, CBOT, NYMEX, and COMEX member fee eligibility policies and to update and clarify them as needed. This FPB supersedes all previous bulletins discussing fee policy issues for member firm accounts.
