    • FIX/FAST 2.0 Updates

      Effective this Sunday, May 9, 2010, CME Globex will launch FIX/FAST 2.0 for production parallel testing, on a subset of new Market Data Platform channels. As of Sunday, June 6, CME Globex market data will be disseminated exclusively in FIX/FAST 2.0 format. This launch introduces a number of customer-requested enhancements to support trading and market data strategies.

      Production Parallel Testing
      This Sunday, May 9, five production parallel channels will be made available for customer testing purposes only. CME Group strongly recommends customers using the production parallel channels continue to rely on the current, FIX/FAST 1.6-format channels for their trading activity.

      CME Group will make available a new configuration file for the Production environment, named config20.xml. This file will contain 5 channels utilizing the FIX/FAST 2.0 format. These channels will have new IP addresses and ports. The balance of channels in this file will be in the FIX/FAST 1.6 format with the current multicast IPs and ports.

      Mock Trading Sessions
      Another mock trading session for FIX/FAST 2.0 in the CME Globex production environment will be offered Saturday, May 8, 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. Central time. An  overview of the mock trading session is available online. Customers must  register online to participate.

      A third mock trading session has been added to the schedule. On Saturday, June 5, all current production channels will broadcast FIX/FAST 2.0-format. More information will be available in upcoming CME Globex and Quote Vendor Notices.

      Please contact  Global Account Management with any questions about these mock sessions.
