LME Gateway Release

Earlier today LME Gateway 7.18.31 was released to prevent an issue with pricing on LME Nickel Products when the 3-Month Nickel TAS functionality is launched on Monday, February 18.  This release prevents TAS prices from entering the book on the Nickel products erroneously. Customers who trade the Nickel (NI) product are strongly advised to upgrade prior to Monday, February 18.

Due to the observance of the President’s Day Holiday, CME day orders placed on Sunday, February 17th will be for the trade date of Tuesday, February 19th and will not expire until Tuesday’s close.

In order to maintain fill records over this extended session, the TT CME Fill Server must be configured to not rollover on Monday, February 18th.  To perform this configuration change, open the TTconfigCME_Rollover_Schedule.ini file and comment out Monday’s line.

#sunday = 22:37:00,21:37:00

#monday= 22:37:00,21:37:00

tuesday= 22:37:00,21:37:00

wednesday= 22:37:00,21:37:00

thursday= 22:37:00,21:37:00

friday= 22:37:00,21:37:00

#saturday= 22:37:00,21:37:00

Revert this configuration change on Tuesday, February 19th.

Important Notes

  • This configuration change will impact all products that trade via TT CME Gateways.  If any contracts are not observing adjusted trade dates due to the holiday, fill records for those contracts will remain visible over multiple trade dates.
  • Customers using Drop Copy FIX Adapters should verify that their systems will not pull fill records in a way that will result in the same fill being pulled twice, as fill records will not be purged on Monday as usual.

For more information regarding the exchange schedule please click here, and refer to the “Compact Excel” file for the President’s Day Holiday.

NOTE: Due to CME’s observance of the following holidays in 2018, “TT CME Fill Server” configuration changes must be carried out for each holiday.  We will send updated Customer Advisories in the days leading up to each, which will include specifics for that particular holiday.

Due to the observance of the President’s Day Holiday, CFE day orders placed on Sunday, February 17th will be for the trade date of Tuesday, February 19th and will not expire until Tuesday’s close. In order to maintain fill records over this extended session, the CFE Order Server must be configured to not purge fills on Monday, February 18th. To perform this configuration change within the “hostinfo.cfg” file, type “NoPurgeDates=1/21,2/18,5/27,7/4,9/2,11/28,12/25” under the [OrderServer] section within the hostinfo.cfg. By performing this configuration change it will ensure that the CFE gateway will purge the fills correctly after the exchange halt.

 

Example of how it should look:

[OrderServer]

NoPurgeDates=1/21,2/18,5/27,7/4,9/2,11/28
