MGEX, a Designated Contract Market (DCM) and Derivatives Clearing Organization (DCO), is pleased to announce the launch date of October 26, 2012 for the MGEX Information Xchange (MIX).
The MIX is an accessible website forum offering registered users a public venue to anonymously discuss trading and market information within the MGEX marketplace.
Hours of operation for the MIX will be 7:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. CT Monday through Friday. The MIX is strictly for communication; it is not a trading platform, nor is there any matching that is completed on the MIX.
To become a registered user, one must simply fill out a user agreement. Becoming a registered user allows users to anonymously post messages and reply to messages on the MIX. The general public has view only access to messages posted on the MIX. The user agreement can be accessed at mgex.com.
"MGEX developed the MIX to meet the needs and requests of our market participants, and to provide additional transparency to the marketplace," said Todd Posthuma, Associate Director, Market Operations and IT. "We are proud to offer this useful tool for users and the general public alike," Posthuma said.
The MIX will be live beginning October 26, 2012. Any questions can be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org or 612-321-7135.
On August 13, 2012, MGEX launched the AJC futures and options contract.
