Also, in accordance with the Market Maker Agreement, Section 4(iv), Nadex will deem the period between 9:30am ET on December 5, 2018 through the close of trading on that day as an Illiquid Market with respect to the Intraday 5-Minute contracts.  Market Makers may refrain from quoting during this period.

Nadex submitted an Emergency Action to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (the “Commission”) on December 3, 2018 pursuant to Section 5c(c)(1) of the Commodity Exchange Act, as amended (“Act”), and section §40.6(a) of the regulations promulgated by the Commission under the Act notifying of these listing changes.
