CME GTD Orders and Fills During Labor Day Holiday

Advisory CA028-18

CME GTD Orders and Fills During Labor Day Holiday

Due to the observance of the Labor Day Holiday, CME day orders placed on Sunday, September 2nd will be for the trade date of Tuesday, September 4th 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, September 3rd.  To perform this configuration change, open the \TT\config\CME_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 September 4th.

 

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 Labor 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.

Possible Stale Orders on LME

Advisory CA027-18

Possible Stale Orders on LME

 

Over the past weekend, LME performed an mandatory API upgrade.  Following this upgrade GTC & GTD orders were not carried over and were cancelled by the exchange.  Traders should verify the status of any GTCs that were working prior to this weekend and submit new GTC orders where necessary.

If orders were not removed prior to this weekend, traders may be at risk of stale GTC orders that appear to be working on X_TRADER, but are in fact not working on LME.  Please contact the exchange to verify the status of any GTCs entered prior to the past weekend. Stale working orders can be removed by performing an Admin Delete via X_RISK.

 

A copy of the exchange’s advisory is below for your reference.
