Hello Traders,

 If you are an “emini trader” please read the below notice.  The short version of the message below is as follows:


Until now, 3:15 PM  Central time was the cut off and was considered the end of the day for margin purposes. As of this Sunday, 4:15 PM Central time is considered the end of the day for all purposes including day-trading margins. Please read below and let me know if you have any questions.

Effective this Sunday, November 18 for trade date Monday, November 19, electronic trading hours on CME Globex for equity index futures and options, including the e-mini S&P 500, e-mini Dow ($5), e-mini NASDAQ 100, and other contracts, will be changed to the following:

Please note: For all applicable contracts affected by the new trading session times, any trades done before the 4:15 p.m. end of trading session will be considered same business day trades. Any contract that is held in customer accounts at the 4:15 p.m close will require full exchange margin. Any trades done after the market reopen at 5:00 p.m. will be considered next day’s business. Also, all of these products will now end at 4:15 p.m. on Fridays, as opposed to the previous close time of 3:15 p.m.
