Nadex Amends its Product Schedule Guidelines for Holidays

 

Pursuant to Section 5c(c)(1) of the Commodity Exchange Act, and Commission Regulation §40.6(a), Nadex has submitted notice to the Commission of its intent to amend its Product Schedule Guidelines for Holidays to clarify trading hours for the Thursday prior to a Friday holiday. The Guidelines currently indicate that the Exchange will close at 4:15pm ET on the Thursday prior to a Friday for which the Exchange is closed for holiday. This close time is correct, but Nadex is making an amendment to the Guidelines to specifically state that contracts available for trading on Thursday will close according to their regular Friday schedule on that day, as was the original intent of this provision. The amendment to the language is necessary to clarify that the Intraday 5-Minute EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY, AUD/USD Binary contracts will not close at 4:15pm ET when the Exchange closes, rather they will close at 4:00pm ET as they do on a regular Friday trading day.

Nadex Listing Hours for the Week of March 30, 2015

 

Pursuant to Section 5c(c)(1) of the Commodity Exchange Act, and Commission Regulation §40.6(a), Nadex has submitted notice to the Commission that it will not be listing its Nonfarm Payrolls Binary contracts for the week of March 30, 2015. The release date for the underlying number is scheduled for Friday, April 3, 2015, and as the Exchange will be closed on April 3, 2015 in observance of the Good Friday holiday this would cause settlement of the Nonfarm Payrolls Binary contracts to be delayed until the Exchange reopened on trade date April 6, 2015. Accordingly, Nadex has decided it is in the best interest of its market participants to not list its Nonfarm Payrolls Binary contract for the week of March 30, 2015.

 

Additionally, Nadex is clarifying that its Intraday 5-Minute EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY, AUD/USD Binary contracts will be closing at 4:00pm ET on April 2, 2015 (the day prior to the Good Friday holiday) as they would on a regular Friday trading day.

 

The Exchange will close at 4:15pm ET on April 2, 2015, and any contracts listed for trading on this day will close pursuant to their regular Friday schedule. The Exchange will be closed on April 3, 2015 and will reopen at its regular time for trade date April 6, 2015. No FTSE 100®, Germany 30, or China 50 contracts will be available for trading on trade date April 6, 2015.
