CME Group amended its Market Regulation Advisory Notice regarding disruptive trading effective July 11 to add the entry of test orders to the list of non-actionable message types that could be used to facilitate prohibited activity. Moreover, the MRAN was amended to reflect that CME Group offers test products to facilitate connectivity and messaging testing at all times that CME Globex is available, not just during the pre-open. Separately, ICE Futures U.S. amended its guidance on pre-execution communications to provide an additional method of order entry to execute a futures cross trade. Futures orders that are a result of pre-execution communications may now be entered as crossing orders on the exchange’s electronic trading system, or by exposing one order to the ETS for a minimum of five seconds, before entering the opposing order.
