The CME has informed Rithmic that the change in count calculation for market data subscription reporting, originally scheduled to take effect on April 1, 2020, has been postponed to take effect on May 1, 2020. This deferral provides developers with additional time to enable their apps to make use of the new plug-in capability of R | Trader Pro™. By plugging in to R | Trader Pro™, an app will not require its user to increase its max session count, which means that an additional market data subscription fee will not be incurred. Users will to be able to continue to run multiple apps, plugged in concurrently to a single instance of R | Trader Pro™, and not incur additional market data subscription fees.
