ICE: Harmonization Changes

June 14

ICE will upgrade the production API on June 14. These changes have been in the UAT and DDE environment since April 30. There are no gateway changes required for this API release, but clients may notice the following change:

For products that are “spreads of spreads”, for example a Q1/Q2 spread, or a 2019/2020 spread, summary leg fills for the child legs have been replaced by the underlying legs (eg Jan/Feb/Mar/Apr/May/Jun). In addition, the product names will include the legs. On TT we will look to improve the product alias.

CME: Changes to User Defined Spreads Functionality and Resting Order Eliminations

Q2 2019

CME will implement the following changes to User Defined Spreads (UDS) functionality on CME Globex in Q2 2019:

  • Extended timing for UDS creation
  • Effects of UDS creation in non-open market states
  • Changes to tag 5979-RequestTime value
