    • For CBOT Grains and Financials, CME Live Cattle and Lumber, and KC Wheat, deliveries are assigned according to oldest original trade date. FCMs holding long positions in these products during the delivery period must keep an accurate record of their long positions by original trade date in the Deliveries system. FCMs may utilize two methods for reporting longs; manual entry on the Deliveries system GUI or submitting a file through CME’s FTP server.
      For manual entry, FCMs can add holdings using their CMF/TMF/Origin combination along with quantity and original trade date for open positions. There is also an optional field for a customer account number. Once entered, the record will remain until it is assigned for delivery or removed by the FCM.
