Disclaimer
Futures trading is not suitable for all investors, and involves the risk of loss. Futures are a leveraged investment, and because
only a percentage of a contract’s value is required to trade, it is possible to lose more than the amount of money deposited for
a futures position. Therefore, traders should only use funds that they can afford to lose without affecting their lifestyles. And
only a portion of those funds should be devoted to any one trade because they cannot expect to profit on every trade.
All references to options refer to options on futures.

Getting Started
The AutoCert+ tool is an automated testing tool for validating application functionality. It provides an easy-to-use web interface
for walking through CME Group certification scenarios.
To facilitate the process of connecting a customer application, CME Group provides a dedicated certification environment to
allow customers to test their systems before they complete certification.
The AutoCert+ FIX/FAST tests focus on the Market Data Platform FIX/FAST 2.0 Test Suite.
Note: Where possible, AutoCert + logs messages in the FIX/FAST format.
To run and navigate AutoCert+:
1. Log into the automated certification tool.
2. Review general AutoCert+ test suite navigation and general interview information.
3. Complete the Interview for this test suite.
4. Complete applicable test cases.
5. Complete the certification process from the Post Certification tab.

channel.
