CME Group Issues A Market Regulation Advisory Notice For CME ClearPort

In the news release, CME Group Issues a Market Regulation Advisory Notice for CME ClearPort, issued 12-Oct-2012 by CME Group over PR Newswire, we are advised by the company that the second paragraph, second sentence, should read "Rule 525 will not become effective and will be formally withdrawn upon the effective date of the block trade rules that NYMEX submitted to the CFTC on September 27, 2012." rather than "Rule 525 will not become effective and will be formally withdrawn upon the effective date of the block trade rules that NYMEX submitted to the CFTC on October 1, 2012." as originally issued inadvertently. The complete, corrected release follows:

CME Group Issues a Market Regulation Advisory Notice for CME ClearPort

CHICAGO, Oct. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CME Group, the world's leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace, released a Market Regulation Advisory Notice today about CME ClearPort.

This Advisory Notice supersedes NYMEX Market Regulation Advisory Notice RA1201-6 (Rule 525 Core Principle 9(B)(iii) Trades) from September 26, 2012.  Rule 525 will not become effective and will be formally withdrawn upon the effective date of the block trade rules that NYMEX submitted to the CFTC on September 27, 2012. The block trade rules are scheduled to become effective at the start of trading on October 15, pursuant to the self-certification process. This Advisory Notice is being issued to notify the marketplace that the CME ClearPort business model will be transitioned to promote direct execution of the CME ClearPort slate of futures contracts and options on futures contracts by means of trading on CME Globex and on the trading floor.  All CME ClearPort contracts already listed on CME Globex will continue to be offered on that platform, and ongoing product additions to CME Globex will continue as per the schedule identified here

In order to ensure orderly trading for those products that market participants may wish to trade apart from the public auction market and that are eligible for such trading, the block trade rules that NYMEX submitted to the CFTC on October 1, 2012, are scheduled to become effective at the start of trading on October 15, pursuant to the self-certification process.

Exchange for Related Position (EFRP, including EFS and EOO) transactions may continue under our rules as another means of execution in CME ClearPort products for market participants.  It is our understanding that the CFTC Division of Swap Dealer and Intermediary Oversight will be issuing interpretive guidance making clear that the swap component of any EFRP trade is a swap that is subject to all applicable swap regulations, including such swap regulations that are effective as of October 12, 2012. 

We also understand the CFTC Division of Swap Dealer and Intermediary Oversight will today be issuing no-action relief which provides that the swap components of EFRP trades that are entered into prior to December 31, 2012, will not count toward any market participant's swap dealer de minimis threshold.

This Advisory Notice also supersedes the CME Open Letter to the Energy Market of September 24, 2012, (and associated CME ClearPort FAQ), which are also withdrawn.
