The CME Group Market Regulation Department is adopting updated guidance in its Market Regulation Advisory Notice (MRAN) concerning the execution of block trades in CME, CBOT, NYMEX, and COMEX products. The updated guidance includes provisions related to 1) the authority of the Chief Regulatory Officer or his designee to permit block trades to be executed at less than the block trade minimum threshold, 2) the time of execution of block trades, 3) the disclosure of customers’ identity by brokers, and 4) principals engaging in pre-hedging.
