CME Direct Messenger
CME Direct Messenger is an instant messaging platform for traders in the energy markets. It was launched by CME Group on July 31, 2012. The technology surrounding the platform was created by CME's subsidiary, Pivot Inc., which has also built a similar messenger for equity markets. The tools provided are expected to increase the distribution of request-for-quotes, block orders, complex options and other order types within the energy and equity markets and will integrate that technology into pre-trade, trade and post-trade workflows of traders.
Direct Messenger is part of a wider CME program called CME Direct. Direct is a technology offering that includes side-by-side trading of exchange listed and over-the-counter (OTC) energy markets. The platform creates a workflow where traders can message customers or other traders while trading on listed and OTC markets
