European-style FX Options, Delivered

CME Group has replaced our American-style FX options with a European-style 2 p.m. fix to allow you to trade in our FX markets in the same way you trade in the OTC market. With this change, you will benefit from the same product you are used to and the same liquidity you expect with, simply, new trading codes.

With this change, we now offer two European-style fixes: 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. For your convenience, the relevant codes for the new 2 p.m. fix for your platform partners are listed below.
