The Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) Inc. announced starting January 2 it will begin listing the April 2018 contract month for Live Cattle Futures and Options contracts.
The move is still pending on the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s regulatory review period.
Prior to this move, the CME had temporarily halted the listing schedule for additional months of contracts on cattle trading. A similar move was made on November 6, when the CME listed February 2018’s contract month.
Currently, the CME will continue to delay listings for subsequent contract months on contracts for cattle.
