Cboe Europe: Cboe LIS Brexit Migration
September 16, 2020 14:35:02

Dear Cboe Europe Equities Participants

As part of Cboe's Brexit preparations, we are pleased to announce the introduction of Cboe LIS functionality to the Cboe NL venue (MIC: 'LISZ'), providing Participants access to block trading in 16 EEA markets. Cboe UK will offer LIS functionality across 18 markets (EEA + UK & Switzerland) both prior to and post-Brexit Transition Period (MIC: 'LISX').

In order to access the liquidity available on the new LISZ book, Participants will need to fulfil the below requirements:

- Valid clearing arrangements on Cboe NL (DXE) venue.

- LIS order (IOI) entry sessions nominated for European flow (Participants will need to request new IOI entry ports in order to access the EU liquidity). Your Account Manager will be in contact to notify you of your existing port configuration.

- Drop copy or Trade Data file access on Cboe NL (DXE); This is optional for Participants that will use the Cboe LIS Drop copy.

- Designated Brokers in our LISX and LISZ venues will be asked to review their clients' access to Cboe UK and Cboe NL so that they can remain within any Participant obligations (Share Trading Obligation).

- Users/Clients of Designated Brokers are required to complete the Cboe LIS user form here prior to going live.

Trades reported via Cboe NL will have an LISZ MIC code from the Production Go Live date, to be shared with Participants in a further communication. LISZ will be available for 16 EEA markets supported by Cboe NL. Participants should note that the launch is subject to regulatory conditions in the run up to and at the time of Brexit and a final launch decision by Cboe. We therefore advise Participants to retain their existing Cboe UK connectivity whilst also establishing Cboe NL connectivity.

Reference Data
The LIS Symbol Reference Data File will not be supported after the Production Go Live date. Participants will be required to download the CXE and DXE Symbol Reference Data Files where the 'supported_services' column value will denote whether a symbol is reported via Cboe UK (CXE) or Cboe NL (DXE) as per the below:

- Cboe LIS UK (CXE) - 'L' for supported_services

- Cboe LIS NL (DXE) - 'N' for supported_services

Pricing
Cboe NL LIS ports will be free of charge until 31st January 2021. All other prices remain unchanged.

Testing
The changes described above will be available in the Cboe LIS test (Certification) environment from 2nd November 2020. Please contact the Trade Desk in order to facilitate testing.
Participants will also be able to test their Production setup using Cboe Test symbols. The availability of Production testing will be announced at a later date.

Production
The launch of the Cboe NL LIS Production environment will be communicated in a subsequent notice, however Participants will be able to order Production ports immediately. Please liaise with your Account Manager to confirm your requirements.

Dear Cboe Europe Equities Participants

Annual Disaster Recovery test - Saturday 12th Sept 2020

Cboe Europe (Cboe) will be conducting its annual disaster recovery (DR) test for the Production BXE, CXE, DXE, TRF and SIS environments on Saturday 12th September 2020.

* Production Data: Please ensure that your Production systems are not configured to send Production trade reports when Cboe systems come up on the morning of Saturday 12th September, as all data from that day will be discarded as test data

* Schedule of Activities: Disaster Recovery Testing Guide

Dear Cboe Europe Equities Participants,

As part of Cboe's Brexit programme, Cboe would like to remind Participants about the transaction reporting requirement that arises under Cboe's Rules when conducting cross border trading. Cross border trading is defined as trading activity conducted by a Participant that is not subject to a direct transaction reporting obligation in the jurisdiction in which the relevant Cboe venue is located. To ensure continuity of access on completion of the UK's transition period, impacted Participants are required to certify for a transaction reporting solution by Friday 30th October 2020.

Impacted Participants

Existing non UK or EEA regulated firms will need to continue to transaction report on the relevant Cboe venue, as appropriate.

On completion of the UK's transition period, the following Participants will additionally be in scope:

* UK regulated firms who plan on conducting trading activity on the Cboe NL venue (DXE)

* EEA regulated firms who plan on conducting trading activity on the Cboe UK venue (BXE/CXE)

Transaction Reporting Solutions

The specification for this service can be found here and Participants who need to begin using this service should contact the Trade Desk to begin onboarding and certification.

Update - Participants are now able to use service providers such as Unavista who have technically certified for RTRG though an individual Participant certification will still be required to ensure correct transaction report data is sent to Cboe. Please contact the Trade Desk to begin onboarding and certification.

Cboe Deal Capacity Offering
The introduction of Participant short code information on orders through MIFID II means that (if used correctly) Cboe have the information required to generate transaction reports for clients conducting trading activity in a Deal (Principal) capacity. Participants opting in to this offering will have transactions for their order book executions generated and sent to the required regulator by Cboe.

Participants can opt in to this offering at a bank code (clearing firm) level. However, please note that, orders matching the below, along with any non EOD ETRs, that are submitted via bank codes that are opted in, will be rejected:

* AOTC (Agency) orders

* MITCH (Riskless) orders

* Orders submitted without both an execution and investment short code

* Orders submitted with non-registered short codes. For a registration to be considered valid, it must be uploaded by 5am UK time on the day it is to be used. Any registrations after this time will not take effect until the next trading day.

In addition, Participants must:

* use the 1st priority format given in Annex II of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/590 when identifying natural persons in their investment decision maker or execution decision maker long codes (see Cboe Identifier Management Specification)

Participants wishing to use this offering should contact their Account Manager who can provide the next steps.

Certification Deadline

To guarantee readiness, please ensure you have successfully certified and onboarded for one of the above transaction reporting solutions by no later than Friday 30th October 2020. Any impacted Participants who have not certified for a transaction reporting solution by this date will risk having access to the out of jurisdiction Cboe venue (depending on entity registration) and will be suspended effective Monday 4th January 2021.

Further details on the RTRG service can be found in the RTRG Specification. For any general membership and RTRG queries, please contact your Account Manager. If your query is regarding the technical onboarding please contact the Trade Desk.

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

Dear Cboe Europe Equities Participants

Annual Disaster Recovery test - Saturday 12th Sept 2020

Cboe Europe (Cboe) will be conducting its annual disaster recovery (DR) test for the Production BXE, CXE, DXE, TRF and SIS environments on Saturday 12th September 2020.

Dear Cboe Europe Equities Participants,

As part of Cboe's Brexit programme, Cboe would like to remind Participants about the transaction reporting requirement that arises under Cboe's Rules when conducting cross border trading. Cross border trading is defined as trading activity conducted by a Participant that is not subject to a direct transaction reporting obligation in the jurisdiction in which the relevant Cboe venue is located. To ensure continuity of access on completion of the UK's transition period, impacted Participants are required to certify for a transaction reporting solution by Friday 30th October 2020.

Impacted Participants

Existing non UK or EEA regulated firms will need to continue to transaction report on the relevant Cboe venue, as appropriate.

On completion of the UK's transition period, the following Participants will additionally be in scope:

* UK regulated firms who plan on conducting trading activity on the Cboe NL venue (DXE)

* EEA regulated firms who plan on conducting trading activity on the Cboe UK venue (BXE/CXE)

Trading activity in scope for Transaction Reporting

Transaction Reporting Solutions

Cboe Regulatory Transaction Reporting Gateway
Participants should use the Cboe Regulatory Transaction Reporting Gateway (RTRG) service to submit transaction reports to Cboe who will then forward them onto the relevant regulator. The specification for this service can be found here and Participants who need to begin using this service should contact Trade Desk to begin onboarding and certification.

Update - Participants are now able to use service providers such as Unavista who have technically certified for RTRG though an individual Participant certification will still be required to ensure correct transaction report data is sent to Cboe. Please contact the Trade Desk to begin onboarding and certification.

Cboe Deal Capacity Offering
The introduction of Participant short code information on orders through MIFID II means that (if used correctly) Cboe have the information required to generate transaction reports for clients conducting trading activity in a Deal (Principal) capacity. Participants opting in to this offering will have transactions for their order book executions generated and sent to the required regulator by Cboe.

Participants can opt in to this offering at a bank code (clearing firm) level. However, please note that, orders matching the below, along with any non EOD ETRs, that are submitted via bank codes that are opted in, will be rejected:

* AOTC (Agency) orders

* MITCH (Riskless) orders

* Orders submitted without both an execution and investment short code

* Orders submitted with non-registered short codes. For a registration to be considered valid, it must be uploaded by 5am UK time on the day it is to be used. Any registrations after this time will not take effect until the next trading day.

In addition, Participants must:

* use the 1st priority format given in Annex II of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/590 when identifying natural persons in their investment decision maker or execution decision maker long codes (see Cboe Identifier Management Specification)

Participants wishing to use this offering should contact their Account Manager who can provide the next steps.

Certification Deadline

To guarantee readiness, please ensure you have successfully certified and onboarded for one of the above transaction reporting solutions by no later than Friday 30th October 2020. Any impacted Participants who have not certified for a transaction reporting solution by this date will risk having access to the out of jurisdiction Cboe venue (depending on entity registration) and will be suspended effective Monday 4th January 2021.

Further details on the RTRG service can be found in the RTRG Specification. For any general membership and RTRG queries, please contact your Account Manager. If your query is regarding the technical onboarding please contact the Trade Desk.

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

To ensure continuity of access on completion of the UK's transition period, impacted Participants are required to certify for a transaction reporting solution by Friday 30th October 2020.

Impacted Participants

Existing non UK or EEA regulated firms will need to continue to transaction report on the relevant Cboe venue, as appropriate.

On completion of the UK's transition period, the following Participants will additionally be in scope:

* UK regulated firms who plan on conducting trading activity on the Cboe NL venue (DXE)

* EEA regulated firms who plan on conducting trading activity on the Cboe UK venue (BXE/CXE)

Trading activity in scope for Transaction Reporting

Transaction Reporting Solutions

Cboe Regulatory Transaction Reporting Gateway
Participants should use the Cboe Regulatory Transaction Reporting Gateway (RTRG) service to submit transaction reports to Cboe who will then forward them onto the relevant regulator. The specification for this service can be found here and Participants who need to begin using this service should contact Trade Desk to begin onboarding and certification.

Update - Participants are now able to use service providers such as Unavista who have technically certified for RTRG though an individual Participant certification will still be required to ensure correct transaction report data is sent to Cboe. Please contact the Trade Desk to begin onboarding and certification.

Cboe Deal Capacity Offering
The introduction of Participant short code information on orders through MIFID II means that (if used correctly) Cboe have the information required to generate transaction reports for clients conducting trading activity in a Deal (Principal) capacity. Participants opting in to this offering will have transactions for their order book executions generated and sent to the required regulator by Cboe.

Participants can opt in to this offering at a bank code (clearing firm) level. However, please note that, orders matching the below, along with any non EOD ETRs, that are submitted via bank codes that are opted in, will be rejected:

* AOTC (Agency) orders

* MITCH (Riskless) orders

* Orders submitted without both an execution and investment short code

* Orders submitted with non-registered short codes. For a registration to be considered valid, it must be uploaded by 5am UK time on the day it is to be used. Any registrations after this time will not take effect until the next trading day.

In addition, Participants must:

* use the 1st priority format given in Annex II of Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/590 when identifying natural persons in their investment decision maker or execution decision maker long codes (see Cboe Identifier Management Specification)

Participants wishing to use this offering should contact their Account Manager who can provide the next steps.

Certification Deadline

To guarantee readiness, please ensure you have successfully certified and onboarded for one of the above transaction reporting solutions by no later than Friday 30th October 2020. Any impacted Participants who have not certified for a transaction reporting solution by this date will risk having access to the out of jurisdiction Cboe venue (depending on entity registration) and will be suspended effective Monday 4th January 2021.

Further details on the RTRG service can be found in the RTRG Specification. For any general membership and RTRG queries, please contact your Account Manager. If your query is regarding the technical onboarding please contact the Trade Desk.

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

Cboe Europe (Cboe) will be conducting its annual disaster recovery (DR) test for the Production BXE, CXE, DXE, TRF and SIS environments on Saturday 12th September 2020.
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 incident 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 10th September. No new port requests will be processed on Friday 11th September.
* Production Data - Please ensure that your Production systems are not configured to send Production trade reports when Cboe systems come up on the morning of Saturday 12th September, as all data from that day will be discarded as test data.

* Schedule of Activities - Disaster Recovery Testing Guide

Key contacts on the day

* The following Cboe support contacts will be available from 07:00 until 13:30 UK time:

Dear Cboe Europe Participants,

Cboe is pleased to announce the introduction of a new interbook order type, Dark to Periodic Auction Book (PAB) Sweep, which offers Participants access to the Dark and Periodic Auction order books with a single order. Dark to PAB orders will first sweep the Dark Book (midpoint matching) as an effective IOC before targeting the PAB as a midpoint pegged order with any residual quantity resting on the PAB for the remainder of the order's time in force. This new sweep order will be available in the Production BXE and DXE (pending regulatory approval) environments effective Friday 10th July 2020.

Participants can use the new Dark to PAB Sweep order in the following ways once a written request is made to the Trade Desk to enable the sweep order type on their trading sessions:

* Supplying a value of BH in the RoutingInstruction (FIX tag 9303)

* Submit a request to the Trade Desk to enable, at a port level, that all Dark Book orders with a RoutingInstruction (FIX tag 9303) of BD be automatically converted to Dark to PAB Sweep orders

The Dark to PAB Sweep order has the following characteristics:

* The order will be Midpoint pegged honouring the limit price. Where the optional ExecInst (FIX tag 18) is supplied, only the value Midpoint pegged (M) is supported. Supplying any other value will cause the order to be rejected.

* A TimeInForce (FIX tag 59) of IOC will be treated as a GoodForAuction in the PAB

* Executions resulting from a Dark to PAB order will have a LastMkt (FIX tag 30) value reflecting the market of execution. For BXE (BATD or BATP) and for DXE (CEUD or BEUP).

* If a symbol is capped due to MiFID/ESMA dark volume cap or primary market pricing is unavailable the Dark to PAB order will route directly to the PAB instead of being rejected

* Broker preferencing will be honoured in the PAB but not in the Dark Book

* Order amendments to a Dark to PAB Sweep order which is resting on the PAB will not route through the Dark Book

* MinQty (FIX tag 110) is supported

* MaxFloor (FIX tag 111) is not supported and if entered will be ignored

Production
The new sweep order type will be available in the BXE and DXE (pending regulatory approval) Production environments, effective Friday 10th July 2020.

Testing
The new sweep order type has been available for testing in the BXE and DXE Certification (UAT) environments since Monday 8th June 2020. A sweep order type certification is required if not already completed.

Pricing
Executions resulting from a Dark to PAB Sweep order will attract the associated fees per the order book they execute on. The Pricing Schedule is available here http://markets.cboe.com/europe/equities/support/price_lists/.

Dear Cboe Europe Participants,

Cboe is pleased to announce the introduction of a new interbook order type, Dark to Periodic Auction Book (PAB) Sweep, which offers Participants access to the Dark and Periodic Auction order books with a single order. Dark to PAB orders will first sweep the Dark Book (midpoint matching) as an effective IOC before targeting the PAB as a midpoint pegged order with any residual quantity resting on the PAB for the remainder of the order's time in force. This new sweep order will be available in the Production BXE and DXE environments effective Friday 10th July 2020.

Participants can use the new Dark to PAB Sweep order in the following ways once a written request is made to the Trade Desk to enable the sweep order type on their trading sessions:

* Supplying a value of BH in the RoutingInstruction (FIX tag 9303)

* Submit a request to the Trade Desk to enable, at a port level, that all Dark Book orders with a RoutingInstruction (FIX tag 9303) of BD be automatically converted to Dark to PAB Sweep orders

The Dark to PAB Sweep order has the following characteristics:

* The order will be Midpoint pegged honouring the limit price. Where the optional ExecInst (FIX tag 18) is supplied, only the value Midpoint pegged (M) is supported. Supplying any other value will cause the order to be rejected.

* A TimeInForce (FIX tag 59) of IOC will be treated as a GoodForAuction in the PAB

* Executions resulting from a Dark to PAB order will have a LastMkt (FIX tag 30) value reflecting the market of execution. For BXE (BATD or BATP) and for DXE (CEUD or BEUP).

* If a symbol is capped due to MiFID/ESMA dark volume cap or primary market pricing is unavailable the Dark to PAB order will route directly to the PAB instead of being rejected

* Broker preferencing will be honoured in the PAB but not in the Dark Book

* Order amendments to a Dark to PAB Sweep order which is resting on the PAB will not route through the Dark Book

* MinQty (FIX tag 110) is supported

* MaxFloor (FIX tag 111) is not supported and if entered will be ignored

Production
The new sweep order type will be available in the BXE and DXE Production environments, effective Friday 10th July 2020.

Testing
The new sweep order type will be available for testing in the BXE and DXE Certification (UAT) environments, effective Monday 8th June 2020. A sweep order type certification is required if not already completed.

Pricing
Executions resulting from a Dark to PAB Sweep order will attract the associated fees per the order book they execute on. The Pricing Schedule is available here http://markets.cboe.com/europe/equities/support/price_lists/.

Dear Cboe UK Participants,

Cboe UK (Cboe) is pleased to announce the introduction of an Additional Liquidity Provider Scheme (A-LPS) which will reward Participants for setting the Best Bid or Offer on the CXE Lit Order Book in eligible securities effective Friday 1st May, 2020.

Eligibility and minimum requirements
Subject to meeting the pre-existing Liquidity Provider Scheme (LPS) detailed on the Trading Price List, Participants will be automatically enrolled and assessed for the Additional Liquidity Provider Scheme (A-LPS).

Additional Liquidity Provider Scheme (A-LPS)
For each displayed add order that sets the CXE Lit Order Book BBO (in the eligible securities and qualifying minimum sizes detailed below) and subsequently executes, an additional -0.10bps fee will be credited on the notional value executed (partials or full). Any order modifications will cause the order to be re-assessed.

Eligible securities and qualifying minimum size
Initially the A-LPS will be available in Milan blue-chip listed securities detailed in the CXE reference data file. In readiness for the A-LPS, Cboe has added a new column "setter_size" to the Symbol Reference Data CSV Files in all Cboe Europe PRODUCTION environments, effective Friday 24th April 2020. This change is currently available in the Certification (UAT) environment. For further information on this change, please refer to the previously sent Trade Desk notice

Charge for removers (takers)
A standard effective charge of 0.325bps will be applied to the notional value of remove executions in eligible Blue Chip Milan securities. A monthly discounted rate for executions against orders that do not meet the size and price qualifying criteria for A-LPS will be applied at the standard CXE Lit Order Book remove charge rates.

The effective 0.325 bps rate will be achieved by applying an additional charge to the standard CXE remove tier charge for an execution. This value will be calculated at the end of each month by deducting a Participants pan-European blended removed bps charge on the CXE Lit Order Book from 0.325bps. Trades against orders that do not meet the size and price qualifying criteria for A-LPS will have this charge removed.

Trade Reconciliation - Fee Codes and Liquidity Indicator Values
To assist Participants with trade reconciliation, new Fee Code and Liquidity Indicator values will be returned on FIX and BOE session execution messages as follows:

* The FeeCode(9882) FIX tag and FeeCode BOE field will contain AS = Added Liquidity A-LPS BBO Setter or RS = Removed Liquidity from A-LPS BBO Setter
* The TradeLiquidityIndicator(9730) FIX tag will contain AS = Added Liquidity A-LPS BBO Setter or RS = Removed Liquidity from A-LPS BBO Setter
* The SubLiquidityIndicator BOE field will contain S = Liquidity A-LPS BBO

The end of day Trade Data File will show new SubLiquidity and Fee Code values in their respective columns and to further assist participants in their reconciliation, the Daily Participant Tiering Report will show additional added and removed execution values.

Duration
The A-LPS will be introduced for an initial period of 6 months. Cboe will consider adding further securities or other market segments during or after this initial 6 month period, subject to regulatory approval.

UAT Availability
The CXE UAT environment can be used for testing now:

* The "setter_size" column in the Symbol Reference Data file will be populated with the qualifying minimum size for eligible securities
* The Fee Codes and Liquidity Indicator values described in the "Trade Reconciliation" section above which will be returned on applicable executions via FIX and BOE sessions

Effective Monday 27th April 2020 the Trade Data File will be available to test with the new values described above.

Dear Cboe Europe Equities Participants,
Cboe Europe Equities (Cboe) will be adding a new column "setter_size" to the Symbol Reference Data CSV Files in all Cboe Europe PRODUCTION environments, effective Friday 24th April 2020. This column will be added to the end of the files, and will contain the minimum number of shares required for an order to qualify for potential future 'setter' pricing schemes, if applicable. Where not applicable the column will be blank. Up until the point such a pricing scheme is launched, subject to regulatory approval, any values present in this column should be ignored.

Certification (UAT) Testing
This change to the Symbol Reference Data CSV Files has been available in the Certification (UAT) environments for testing since Monday 30th March 2020.

Dear Cboe Europe Equities Participants,
Cboe Europe Equities (Cboe) will be adding a new column "setter_size" to the Symbol Reference Data CSV Files in all Cboe Europe PRODUCTION environments, effective Friday 24th April 2020. This column will be added to the end of the files, and will contain the minimum number of shares required for an order to qualify for potential future 'setter' pricing schemes, if applicable. Where not applicable the column will be blank. Up until the point such a pricing scheme is launched, subject to regulatory approval, any values present in this column should be ignored.

Certification (UAT) Testing
This change to the Symbol Reference Data CSV Files has been available in the Certification (UAT) environments for testing since Monday 30th March 2020.

Dear Cboe Europe Equities Participants

Currently, the first three of twelve characters in the TradeID field (FIX tag 1003) supplied on Trade Capture Report messages (ETRs and TCRs) in BXE, CXE, DXE and the TRF environments are always set to "000". Effective Monday 27th April 2020, Cboe Europe Equities (Cboe) will begin to utilise all twelve characters in the TradeID field across the aforementioned production environments. Any Participants who currently have their system configured to remove the three leading zeros should be aware that these will be utilised as part of the TradeID upon the effective date and review accordingly.

Furthermore, effective Monday 27th April 2020, the FIX tags and file columns described in the below table which are also used to convey a TradeID will be extended to always include these additional three characters across the aforementioned environments, as currently these are always stripped off.

Rationale for change
These changes will allow the Cboe systems to utilise all twelve characters of the TradeID on Trade Capture Report messages in preparation for a change to introduce unique identifiers over a period of one year, with the goal of allowing Participants to specify only this ID when amending or cancelling trade reports at a date to be announced in the future.

Impact
This change will impact the following FIX Tags as this extended value will also be used on the messages to the Central Counterparties (CCPs):

Update on Cboe Europe Operations
March 24, 2020 15:32:07

Dear Cboe Europe Participants and Members of the Trading Community,

Cboe Europe continues to closely monitor developments concerning the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the guidance provided by government and public health agencies.

Following the stay-at-home directive set forth yesterday by the UK and Dutch governments, we wanted to update you on Cboe Europe's operations.
Cboe Europe's markets continue to operate normally. Currently, all Cboe Europe staff are working remotely from home and the majority have been working in this capacity for a number of days. Companywide, we have enacted robust business continuity plans that are designed to ensure we continue to operate our exchanges effectively while doing all that we reasonably can to help minimize the spread of COVID-19.
The UK stay-at-home directive includes exemptions for "essential financial services", which exempt Cboe Europe. For the health and safety of our associates and broader community, all Cboe Europe associates will continue to work remotely until further notice, but should any critical operational staff need to visit our facilities for any reason, this would be allowed under the exemption.
Cboe Europe is deeply committed to the orderly operation and surveillance of our markets to help ensure participants are able to execute their trading activities during this unprecedented time. We remain vigilant in monitoring our capacity and resiliency thresholds to help to ensure our markets continue to operate efficiently and effectively.

We will continue to monitor guidelines and work closely with regulators and market participants so that our markets continue to function and serve the needs of investors during this unprecedented crisis. We remain committed to the well-being and safety of our associates, customers and broader community.

For additional updates on Cboe's Business Continuity Plans, please refer to our COVID-19 webpage or contact the Trade Desk or your Account Manager if you have further questions.

Dear Cboe Europe Equities Participants,
Cboe Europe Equities (Cboe) will be adding a new column "setter_size" to the Symbol Reference Data CSV Files in all Cboe Europe PRODUCTION environments, effective Friday 24th April 2020. This column will be added to the end of the files, and will contain the minimum number of shares required for an order to qualify for potential future 'setter' pricing schemes, if applicable. Where not applicable the column will be blank. Up until the point such a pricing scheme is launched, subject to regulatory approval, any values present in this column should be ignored.

Certification (UAT) Testing
This change to the Symbol Reference Data CSV Files will be made available in the Certification (UAT) environments for testing effective Monday 30th March 2020.

Dear Cboe Europe Equities Participants

Currently, the first three of twelve characters in the TradeID field (FIX tag 1003) supplied on Trade Capture Report messages (ETRs and TCRs) in BXE, CXE, DXE and the TRF environments are always set to "000". Effective Monday 27th April 2020, Cboe Europe Equities (Cboe) will begin to utilise all twelve characters in the TradeID field across the aforementioned production environments. Any participants who currently have their system configured to remove the three leading zeros should be aware that these will be utilised as part of the TradeID upon the effective date and review accordingly.

Furthermore, effective Monday 27th April 2020, the FIX tags and file columns described in the below table which are also used to convey a TradeID will be extended to always include these additional three characters across the aforementioned environments, as currently these are always stripped off.

Rationale for change
These changes will allow the Cboe systems to utilise all twelve characters of the TradeID on Trade Capture Report messages in preparation for a change to introduce unique identifiers over a period of one year, with the goal of allowing Participants to specify only this ID when amending or cancelling trade reports at a date to be announced in the future.

Impact
This change will impact the following FIX Tags as this extended value will also be used on the messages to the Central Counterparties (CCPs):

Dear Cboe Europe Equities Participants

Currently, the first three of twelve characters in the TradeID field (FIX tag 1003) supplied on Trade Capture Report messages (ETRs and TCRs) in BXE, CXE, DXE and the TRF environments are always set to "000". Effective Monday 27th April 2020, Cboe Europe Equities (Cboe) will begin to utilise all twelve characters in the TradeID field across the aforementioned production environments. Any participants who currently have their system configured to remove the three leading zeros should be aware that these will be utilised as part of the TradeID upon the effective date and review accordingly.

Furthermore, effective Monday 27th April 2020, the FIX tags and file columns described in the below table which are also used to convey a TradeID will be extended to always include these additional three characters across the aforementioned environments, as currently these are always stripped off.

Rationale for change
These changes will allow the Cboe systems to utilise all twelve characters of the TradeID on Trade Capture Report messages in preparation for a change to introduce unique identifiers over a period of one year, with the goal of allowing Participants to specify only this ID when amending or cancelling trade reports at a date to be announced in the future.

Impact
This change will impact the following FIX Tags as this extended value will also be used on the messages to the Central Counterparties (CCPs):

Dear Cboe Europe Equities Participants

As a final reminder, the legacy BXE and CXE Multicast PITCH feed infrastructure will be sunset as follows:

* The legacy BXE and CXE GIG A (BA & XA), and WAN C (BC & XC) infrastructure will be decommissioned, effective from start of day Monday 27th January 2020.

* Please note legacy real-time feeds, GRP and SPIN port infrastructure will be decommissioned and Participants will be unable to subscribe to these services from start of day on the effective date.

* Participants are required to complete their migration to the previously announced new Multicast PITCH feed infrastructure to avoid any disruption to service:

o Participants should ensure they have migrated to the new BXE and CXE GIG A (BAn & XAn), and WAN C (BCn & XCn) infrastructure before Monday 27th January 2020.

* BXE and CXE Multicast PITCH configuration details can be found in Section 7.1/7.2 of the Multicast PITCH Specification.

* Detailed implementation guidance including network bandwidth management is provided in the Connectivity Manual - Appendix A.

* On Saturday 25th January 2020 Cboe exchange platforms will start-up without the legacy GIG A and WAN C multicast feeds, should Participants wish to test against this configuration. Participants may also notice a disruption or unavailability of TCP port listeners and multicast heartbeat messages for all services throughout the day.

* As of Monday 27th January 2020, the new feeds will be the only means of receiving Multicast PITCH data from the Cboe UK venue orderbooks (BXE and CXE).

* As previously announced, "EU" jurisdiction GRP ports on BXE and CXE will also be deprecated from Monday 27th January 2020.

Furthermore, effective Monday 27th April 2020, the FIX tags and file columns described in the below table which are also used to convey a TradeID will be extended to always include these additional three characters across the aforementioned environments, as currently these are always stripped off.

Rationale for change
These changes will allow the Cboe systems to utilise all twelve characters of the TradeID on Trade Capture Report messages in preparation for a change to introduce unique identifiers over a period of one year, with the goal of allowing Participants to specify only this ID when amending or cancelling trade reports at a date to be announced in the future.

Impact
This change will impact the following FIX Tags as this extended value will also be used on the messages to the Central Counterparties (CCPs):

Dear Cboe Europe Equities Participants

As a reminder, the legacy BXE and CXE Multicast PITCH feed infrastructure will be sunset as follows:

* The legacy BXE and CXE GIG A (BA & XA), and WAN C (BC & XC) infrastructure will be decommissioned, effective from start of day Monday 27th January 2020.

* Please note legacy real-time feeds, GRP and SPIN port infrastructure will be decommissioned and Participants will be unable to subscribe to these services from start of day on the effective date.

* Participants are required to complete their migration to the previously announced new Multicast PITCH feed infrastructure to avoid any disruption to service:

o Participants should ensure they have migrated to the new BXE and CXE GIG A (BAn & XAn), and WAN C (BCn & XCn) infrastructure before Monday 27th January 2020.

* BXE and CXE Multicast PITCH configuration details can be found in Section 7.1/7.2 of the Multicast PITCH Specification.

* Detailed implementation guidance including network bandwidth management is provided in the Connectivity Manual - Appendix A.

* On Saturday 25th January 2020 Cboe exchange platforms will start-up without the legacy GIG A and WAN C multicast feeds, should Participants wish to test against this configuration. Participants may also notice a disruption or unavailability of TCP port listeners and multicast heartbeat messages for all services throughout the day.

* As of Monday 27th January 2020, the new feeds will be the only means of receiving Multicast PITCH data from the Cboe UK venue orderbooks (BXE and CXE).

* As previously announced, "EU" jurisdiction GRP ports on BXE and CXE will also be deprecated from Monday 27th January 2020.
