As announced by CME Group, with the Price Precision Extension initiative, CME products with up to 9 decimals may be listed and traded. On Sunday, January 13 (trade date Monday, January 14), pending regulatory approval, the 2-Year Treasury Note futures, all 2-Year Treasury Future Spreads (including Calendar Spreads, Tail Spreads and Inter-Commodity Spreads with a 2-Year Treasury Future) along with the futures portion of covered options UDS will move from 7 decimals to 8 to support trading at 1/8 of 1/32.
If you receive CME feed from dxFeed, and you plan to support increased price granularity, do the following:
- Migrate to dxFeed Java API version 3.264 or higher. For details, see the release notes.
- Enable the increased precision mode with the JVM properties (-price=wide -Ddxscheme.size=wide). Upon full migration, the increased precision will be available by default.
- Use “asDouble” methods to get access to the increased precision in sizes and volumes.
If you use another dxFeed API to get CME feed, please contact email@example.com for details.
This change will take effect as of January 13, 2019 (trade date Monday, January 14). Please make sure to update your services by this date.
