Cboe Europe: BXTR TRF - Upcoming Changes to Deferral Processing for Unknown Symbols, effective Fri 23rd Mar 2018

February 23, 2018 12:35:46

Dear Cboe Europe Participants

Please be advised that effective Friday 23rd March, 2018 there will be behavioural changes to the Cboe APA service related to processing of deferred trade reports in unknown symbols. A symbol is classified as unknown if it is not present within the Cboe TRF symbol universe. Please note that all On-Exchange trade reporting behaviour in BXE and CXE remains unaffected.

Currently, submission of a trade capture report in an unknown symbol with requested deferred publication either, results in a rejection, or, no deferral being applied (depending on the configuration applied). Effective Friday 23rd March 2018, the same request will result in the trade report being accepted and eligible for deferral as long as the ISIN is within the ESMA register. If the ISIN is not within the ESMA register, then the trade report will still be accepted however the deferral request will be ignored resulting in the trade being published immediately on TRF market data feeds. For more details on the functionality being introduced and other clarifications and updates to deferral behaviour, please review the updated Service Description.

Testing
These changes will be available for testing in TRF Certification environment effective Monday 26th February, 2018.

Cboe Europe: Annual Disaster Recovery Test - Saturday 14th April 2018

January 26, 2018 14:33:26

Dear Cboe Europe Equities Participants

Annual Disaster Recovery test - Saturday 14th April 2018

Cboe Europe (Cboe) will be conducting its annual disaster recovery (DR) test for the Production BXE, CXE, TRF and SIS environments on Saturday 14th April 2018.
The purpose of this testing day is for Cboe to simulate various DR failover scenarios, including a test of market failover from its primary data centre at Equinix Slough (LD4) to its secondary data centre at Equinix Park Royal (LD3). Participant attendance is not mandatory but is strongly recommended as this exercise affords Participants the ability to observe how their trading, quoting, trade reporting and market data applications would function in the event of a DR event at Cboe.

Participants should note the following:

* Change Freeze - Participants wishing to take part in the DR test must submit any outstanding requests for new ports by 16:00 UK time on Thursday 12th April. No new port requests will be processed on Friday 13th April.
* Production Data - Please ensure that your Production systems are configured not to send Production trade reports when Cboe systems come up on the morning of Saturday 14th April, as all data from that day will be discarded as test data.
* Disaster Recovery Test Schedule of Activities - attached

Key contacts on the day

* The standard Cboe support contacts will be available from 07:00 until 13:00 UK time:

Conference Bridge
