YM changes to Fair Value settlement


To harmonize the CBOT Dow Jones Index contracts with the rest of CME's US stock-index offerings, CME Group will introduce month-end fair value (FV) settlement procedures for the following contracts:

E-mini Dow ($5) futures and options
Dow ($10) futures and options
BIG Dow DJIA ($25) futures

Currently these contracts follow normal daily settlement procedures on the last business day of the month. Starting in May, they will follow month-end FV settlement procedures, which are designed to help minimize tracking error in the contracts and make them more conducive to institutional trading needs.
