HKEX: New Product Additions

August 2

HKEX will launch USD-denominated London metal mini futures effective August 5. CNH-denominated London metal mini futures will have “CNH” added to the existing contract name to differentiate them from the new USD-denominated contracts.

To trade these products, apply an updated pMerge file to all HKEX Gateways:

  1. Copy the HKEX.pmg file to <drive letter>:\tt\config.

  2. Stop GuardServer.

  3. Navigate to <drive letter>:\tt\bin.

  4. Double-click pMerge.exe. The Enter Exchange Name window appears.

  5. Specify the exchange name and flavor and click OK. The Open Guardian product table merge file window appears.

  6. Navigate to <drive letter>:\tt\config and select the HKEX.pmg file. pMerge will update the existing Guardian Product Table with the correct values. After pMerge completes its tasks, the pMerge status bar displays Finished.
