CME Group to increase capacity for futures and options instruments listed
Starting on Sunday, May 14 (trade date, Monday May 15), international derivatives marketplace CME Group will increase the capacity for futures and options instruments listed.
Currently, CME Globex only lists up to 1 million instruments. With this change, the full existing capacity will be unlocked, supporting the entire range of 2,147,483,646.
There is no expectation at this time of a significant increase to the number of instruments listed.
Due to recent volatility and global events, the need to list additional futures and options instruments has significantly increased and consequently, CME Group will update the SecurityID capacity. There is no change to the SecurityID field length and there will be no change to SBE message schemas or templates; but the possible values of the SecurityID field will expand to a maximum of 10 digits and a max value of 2,147,483,646.
