We will shut down all existing gateways after the close of business on May 3 (including T+1 close on May 4), but they will remain in place as backups during the stabilization period through May 17. All existing login IDs and passwords will carry forward to production for use on May 6.

Customers will need to test login IDs and passwords during the mandatory post-release verification session on May 5. No order entry will be allowed.

CME: Secure Logon – HMAC Keys Beginning to Expire

Spring 2019

Last year beginning on April 27, CME required HMAC keys for iLink logon. These keys expire every 12 months, and CME is notifying customers as the keys approach expiration. You should contact CME to obtain new keys.

Contact TT with your new HMAC keys. Locally hosted customers need to modify the access key ID and secret key parameters in the hostinfo.cfg file.

Update the account settings in Setup under the Connection tab with the new access ID and secret key fields.

Customers will be able to test TFX 2019 in DDE or by connecting to the new API environment on locally hosted gateways.

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:

  • Performance changes
  • Improved spread recognition logic
  • Extended timing for UDS creation
  • Effects of UDS creation in non-open market states
  • Changes to tag 5979-RequestTime value
  • Harmonization of SecurityID Source values

To facilitate this change, customers will need to cancel all Good ‘Till Cancel (GTC) and Good ‘Till Date (GTD) orders for UDS for only the affected products by the close on the Friday before the production launch. After 4:00 CT on the specified Friday, any remaining GT orders on UDS will be cancelled or deleted by the CME Global Command Center (GCC).

Product launch dates by market segment (staggered rollout) will be announced when finalized.
