Price Banding

By Mark O’Brien, Senior Broker
The CME Group – where stock index futures like the E-mini S&P 500E-mini Nasdaq, E-mini $5 Dow Jones and other markets trade – has several measures in place to ensure that their markets work in an efficient and orderly manner during volatile market conditions. Among the more commonly-known put in place by the CME Group are their price limits and circuit breakers.
Another, maybe less-commonly known, but very important measure to understand is price banding.
Price banding is a mechanism designed to help prevent erroneous, unintended trades. Price banding rejects orders outside a given range, or band. Bands are calculated dynamically, meaning they’re constantly moving, based on the last traded price of a market. A price band is defined as the highest bid price and lowest ask price from the last traded price within which a non-stop order – like a limit order – can be placed.
For example:
The price banding for the E-mini S&P 500 is 6 points.
If the market’s last trading price is 3980.00, its price band is between 3986.00 (bid), 3974.00 (ask). If a BUY LIMIT order is placed with a LIMIT PRICE of 3988.00, because the LIMIT PRICE is outside/above the upper 6-point price band the order would be rejected.
If a SELL LIMIT order is placed with a LIMIT PRICE of 3942.75, because the LIMIT PRICE is outside/below the lower 6-point price band the order would also be rejected.
Price banding is applied to each CME Group produce individually. A complete list of banding information for CME Group markets is available via this Excel reference sheet.
A short video further explaining price banding – and price limits – is available at the CME Group web site on this page.
