Configuring DME Product Support
Trading is supported on the CME Gateway by enabling the price feed channels for DME products in the [price_session] section of the hostinfo.cfg file. To enable a price feed channel, remove the # sign to “uncomment” the corresponding FIX/FAST subject parameter.
For CME Gateway 7.15.0, you will have to manually update hostinfo.cfg with the DME parameters provided by TT. The parameters for DME products are shown in the following example.
Because there is a 14 channel limit on the CME Gateway, ensure that the CME Gateway used for trading DME products has enough capacity to add the additional channel. Refer to Recommendations for Optimal Performance.
The channel definitions are provided by CME Group and included in the fast.cfg file provided by TT. For more information regarding how the CME Gateway uses the fast.cfg file, refer to Example: fast.cfg.
