CME delays closing futures pits for a few days

CME Group Logo

The CME Group said it would delay the closure of outcry futures trading in Chicago and New York by a few days.

Previously scheduled to close on July 2, the last day for most open outcry futures trading is expected to take place on July 6, pending expiration of CFTC review periods, CME announced Tuesday. 

Still, the CME said it could further delay the closure for up to 90 days depending on the CFTC's review.

Shout on the floor while you can, traders.
