The CME Group, the world’s leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace, announced it will begin the process of conducting broad outreach to customers, producer groups and other market participants to review existing CME livestock trading hours on CME Globex.
“Livestock customers and industry participants have asked us to review the current electronic trading hours for our CME livestock products to ensure we are providing the most effective risk management and price discovery tools possible,” said Tim Andriesen, Managing Director, Agricultural Commodities and Alternative Investments, CME Group. “This survey is part of our ongoing efforts to ensure our products continually reflect the changing needs of our customers and the market.”
An online survey of CME Globex trading hours for CME Live Cattle, Feeder Cattle, and Lean Hog futures and options products will be made available to participants on CME Group’s website from Wednesday, August 6 through Tuesday, August 19.
