Dear Client,

Our records indicate account ******** is permissioned to trade Futures.

Please note that Interactive Brokers is completing an effort to update and consolidate exchange names where appropriate. When this effort is complete, the following updates will be in effect:

  • GLOBEX and CMECRYPTO will be consolidated to a single exchange, ‘CME’
  • ECBOT will be updated to ‘CBOT’
  • COMEX listed metals (previously reflected as NYMEX) will be updated to exchange ‘COMEX’
  • NYMEX, no change

Given the wide breadth of products involved, we are migrating in four waves based on underlying products:

Key Effective Trade Date Products
Wave 1 October 30, 2022 GLOBEX: ZAR, LB, DA, IXE
Wave 2 November 6, 2022 GLOBEX: EMD, BRE, CHF, SOFR3, E7, NKD
CMECRYPTO: BTCEURRR, ETHEURRR, MET
Wave 3 November 13, 2022 GLOBEX: All remaining products

CMECRYPTO: All remaining products
ECBOT: ZO, ZR, 2YY, 30Y
NYMEX: ALI, QI, QC|
|Wave 4|TBD|ECBOT: All remaining products
NYMEX: All remaining "Metal" products|

Note: After each migration, GTC orders will be retained. These orders will show the updated exchange name but remain active.

Thank you for posting this. I received notifications from IB regarding the prior changes, but didn't see anything for these.

yes they sent the notification in only 1 email with different dates for the transition (transition in waves) but it seems like these dates were not very accurate. But it looks like they are done now with this transition.
