CME: Market Segment Change and New Market Data Platform Channel

January 21

CME will move the 30 Day Federal Funds futures and future spreads (Product Code ZQ) to a different existing Market Segment and publish market data on a new MDP channel starting on January 21.

TT Impact

Order Server
30 Day Federal Funds futures and future spreads will move from Market Segment 84 to 82. Since Market Segment 82 is already included in the CME-MSGWs.cfg file packaged with the CME Gateway, no change is needed.

Price Server
Since 30 Day Federal Funds futures and future spreads will move to a new MDP channel (348), a new fast.cfg file is required. In order to continue receiving prices for this product, customers must take the following action after the close on January 19 and prior to Price Server startup on January 21:

  1. Download the updated fast.cfg file from the TT website.
  2. Navigate to the <drive letter>:\TT\config directory.
  3. Replace the existing fast.cfg file with the new file downloaded from the TT website.
  4. In the CMEHostInfo.cfg file, add the new CBOT_FAST_IR_FUTURES_2 channel to the [price_session] section as the next FASTSubject in sequence. For example:

Eurex: Partition-Specific Gateways

February 12

Deutsche Börse will begin the migration to partition-specific (PS) gateways using a phased approach beginning on January 22. Additional details from the exchange are in Eurex Circular 130/17.

The exchange migration timeline is:

  • January 22: The first PS gateway will be enabled for Eurex partition 4 (hosting FGBM and FDXM) in parallel to the existing high-frequency gateways.
  • February 12: Access to partition 4 via high-frequency gateways will be disabled.
  • February 19: A PS gateway will be enabled for Eurex partition 9 (hosting options) in parallel to the existing high-frequency gateways.
  • February 26: Access to partition 9 via high-frequency gateways will be disabled.
  • March 5: PS gateway-only access will be enabled for all other Eurex partitions. PS gateways are the only low-latency access to all partitions from this point forward.

Please note that a high-frequency (HF) session will only have the ability to connect to a single partition. Customers who wish to use HF sessions to trade products across multiple partitions will need to request additional HF sessions from Eurex.

Additional information from Eurex on product-to-partition-mapping is available for download from the exchange website in the Eurex Product Specifications file.

We will soon release a gateway compatible with the Eurex partition-specific gateways.
