      CBOT Integration Update

      Mock Trading Session Tomorrow, January 5
      Participation in this weekend's mock trading session is strongly encouraged. This is the last mock trading session before the first CBOT migration weekend on CME Globex.

      In addition, this Saturday's session will incorporate an additional rollback contingency test to ensure client systems can effectively transition from CME Globex to the e-cbot platform in the unlikely event a contingency scenario is invoked. More information is available in the CBOT Mock Trading Plan.

      Customers participating in this Saturday's mock trading session are requested to call into the conference bridge at 866.548.4703, passcode 584529, to receive important updates and information during the session.
