Re: Elimination of Pre-Open State in Delta1
Effective Date: April 10, 2017

OneChicago, LLC (“OneChicago”) is issuing this Notice to Members (“NTM”) 2017-13 to inform market participants that OneChicago is eliminating the Pre-Open state in its trading platform, Delta1.  Delta1 currently supports four primary states: Pre-Open, Open, Close, and Halt.  The Pre-Open state runs from 7:00:00 a.m. CT to 8:29:59 a.m. CT, during which time the reporting of bilateral trades in certain supported instruments, such as block trades and Exchange of Future for Physical (“EFP”) trades, is permitted.  During the Pre-Open state, order entry for SSF and Spread instruments is not permitted.

As of April 10, 2017, OneChicago will eliminate the Pre-Open state entirely.  Instead, bilateral reporting will be permitted for supported instruments in an Open state from 7:00:00 a.m. CT to 8:29:59 a.m. CT.  Unsupported instruments will remain in a Closed state until 8:30:00 a.m. CT.  The trading hours of these instruments is not changing as a result of the elimination of the Pre-Open state, and market participants will not experience any service interruption during this transition.
