Effective today, Friday, January 10, 2014, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Inc., Board of Trade of the City of Chicago, Inc., the New York Mercantile Exchange, Inc., and the Commodity Exchange, Inc. (collectively, “the Exchanges”) will implement administrative amendments to Rule 588.H (Globex Non-Reviewable Trading Ranges) in order to ensure the Exchanges’ rules remain in compliance with Commodity Futures Trading Commission Designated Contract Market (“DCM”) Core Principle 7 (“Availability of General Information”), which requires that DCMs make available to the general public accurate information concerning the contract market’s rules and regulations, contracts and operations. Correspondingly, the goal of the administrative amendments is to provide ease of use for market participants and to harmonize the language structure of the Exchanges’ product rules, to the greatest extent possible. The administrative amendments are stylistic in nature.
