EDGA and EDGX Destination Change (07/30)

Please be advised that effective Thursday, July 30, 2020we will remove destination ROUD, ROUQ and ROUE from gateway EDGA and EDGX in Ppro8 keyboard.

Please remind your trader to send the order to destination ROUZ and ROUT instead.

This change is due to the new routing mechanism from the exchange. The Cboe EDGA Equities (“EDGA”) Exchange and EDGX Equities ("EDGX") Exchange will replace the Comprehensive Liquidity Check (CLC) routing mechanism used for seeking non-lit liquidity with the Dark Routing Technique (DRT) mechanism in order to harmonize the routing offerings across Cboe Equities Exchanges.

In addition, EDGA and EDGX will consolidate multiple routing strategies with similar execution objectives.  As a result, ROUD and ROUQ strategy will convert to ROUZ strategy, and the ROUE strategy will convert to ROUT strategy.
