      Possible lack of an increase in the U.S. statutory debt limit (the debt ceiling) may cause the U.S. Treasury to delay timely payments of interest or principal on Treasury bills, notes, and/or bonds. Should this result in a technical default on U.S. government debt, CME Group's flagship Treasury futures complex would remain operationally intact and fully functional.
