To: ICE Futures U.S., ICE Futures E.U. subscribers
To improve the ICE Futures feeds, we implemented the following symbology changes for all the ICE Futures products:
- Products are now changed to have two-digit maturity year. It will allow to avoid confusions between products expiring in 2010s and products expiring in 2020s.
- Namespaces are now added for all symbols so as to avoid intersection of product codes from different exchanges.
|Product name||Current symbol||New symbol|
|FTSE 100 Index Futures||/ZM8||/ZM18:IFLL|
|Brent Crude Futures||/BRNM8||/BRNM18:IFEU|
|Brent Crude Futures (continuous product)||/BRN||/BRN:IFEU|
|US Dollar Index Futures||/DXM8||/DXM18:IFUS|
|US Dollar Index Futures (continuous product)||/DX||/DX:IFUS|
The list of namespace values match existing MIC values:
- for ICE Futures U.S.: IFUS
- for ICE Futures E.U.: IFEU, IFLL, IFLO, IFLX
These changes will take effect as of September 2, 2018. The changes are incompatible. We allow parallel migration period to allow time to make necessary changes: starting May 18, 2018 both symbologies are available.
Legacy symbols will be disabled on September 2, 2018. Please make sure to subscribe to new symbols by this date.
