UPDATE: Cboe Europe Equities: Brexit Certification (UAT) Testing - Weekly Availability Schedule

April 15, 2019 15:59:36

Dear Cboe Europe Equities Participants

Further to the previous notice regarding the Certification (UAT) environment testing schedule, Cboe Europe (Cboe) will be amending the schedule for configuration of the BXE and CXE Certification environments going forward. Specifically, starting from Thursday 18th April 2019, the BXE and CXE Certification (UAT) environments will be reverted to a single venue (pre-Brexit mode) until further notice. Please note that the APA Certification (UAT) environment will remain configured as separate UK and EU APAs (Brexit-mode).

Functionally this will result in the following behaviour:

Functionality

Effective Thursday 18th April 2019

Order and ETR entry (BXE/CXE)

FIX and BOE session jurisdiction will not be enforced.
Orders and ETRs for either jurisdiction can be entered via a UK or EU FIX or BOE session.

UK and EU Venue MICs in LastMkt and ExecVenue fields (BXE/CXE)

Only UK venue MICs will be supplied in the LastMkt and ExecVenue field for all symbols.

Trading Venue flagging for trade reports (APA)

Will remain configured as separate UK and EU APAs. The regulatory jurisdiction (UK or EU) of the bank code used for trade reporting into the Cboe APA will be used to denote whether the trade report is targeting the UK or EU APA. The resulting Cboe APA will then be reflected on market data via the Cboe Trade Flags field. See Section 5 of the Guidance Note for more details.

Trading Venue flagging for trade reports (BXE/CXE)

All trade reports will be published with UK values in the Cboe Trade Flags field.

ODROP session filtering (BXE/CXE)

ODROP session jurisdiction will not be enforced. Flow for either jurisdiction will be received down an ODROP.

FIXDROP session filtering (BXE/CXE)

FIXDROP session jurisdiction will not be enforced. Flow for either jurisdiction will be received down a FIXDROP.

Transaction Reporting (BXE/CXE)

Order handler validation of cross border trading will not be enforced for transaction reporting as per the website.

Transaction Reporting
For Participants who are in the process of testing or certifying for Transaction Reporting: note that these changes mean all trades will be on the UK venue and use the UK segment MIC codes described here. These Participants should therefore ensure that they are populating the Trading Venue (TradVn) field with the appropriate UK Venue MIC codes. Full details of trading activity in scope and Transaction Reporting solutions can be found here. Please contact your Account Manager if you have any questions.

The Cboe's Brexit microsite resource should be checked regularly by Participants for upcoming updates regarding Brexit. All current and historical Cboe notices, including symbol universe updates, are available online.

Please contact the Trade Desk or your Account Manager if you have any questions.
