The OnixS directConnect: CME STP (Straight Through Processing) API Handler SDK solution is designed to enable CME participants to connect to the Exchange via the CME STP API for retrieval of FIXML 5.0 SP2 messages containing CME cleared trade information.

This CME STP API is what was previously known as the CME "Cleared Trades" (CT) API.

Key features include:

  • Trade confirmations directly from the exchange (including broker trades).
  • Supports all products except IRS.
  • Allows to view Exchange trading, off-Exchange trading, and clearing activity via subscription and query messages.
  • Pre-tested and CME certified – thus saving time and money in integration testing.
  • Encapsulates the transport-level handling.
  • Supported – service level guarantee that the implementation is production strength, and will support current and future enhancements.
  • Easy-to-use and flexible API – designed for rapid integration with existing STP architectures, with a common API style for multi-venue implementations.
  • Flexible logging – ability to analyse and diagnose issues and activity quickly.
  • Includes the fast-start source code reference implementation – designed to get up and running rapidly.
