Early Participant Testing
Cboe Europe (Cboe) are pleased to announce that the European Derivatives Exchange (CEDX) certification environment will be available for early participant testing. Connectivity can be requested from Monday 5th October 2020. The environment will be available from Monday 19th October 2020.
The features described in the table below are available for Participant testing from the date specified. Functionality may not be available across both Futures and Options (simple and complex), therefore Participants should pay close attention to the availability dates.
Functionality will be added incrementally to the certification environment to allow Participants to test as early as possible. Participants are encouraged to check this page for further availability dates and the resources regularly for updates.
Any other features that are visible in certification but not listed as available in this table should be treated as not ready for Participant testing.
