CME Widens Price Fluctuation Bands Ahead of US Poll
CME Group has issued an advisory stating that its Global Command Centre (GCC) has taken “emergency action” ahead of this week’s US election by widening the price fluctuation bands on interest rate futures contracts traded on CME and Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT), which is part of the CME Group. CME says the temporary modification of the price fluctuation limits is a precautionary measure “to ensure fair and orderly trading in these products based on the material likelihood of a marked increase in price volatility expected to result from the General Election vote in the United States to be held of November 8, 2016”.
