The CME Is Having Some Internet Issues

We’re told from a source that hard lines to the Chicago Mercantile Exchange in Chicago are down.

Right now, traders only have wireless access, our source said.

However, Twitter user AgMTKS1, who is a member of the Chicago Board of Trade, says that the floor wireless has gone down.

“Volumes have been pathetic anyway. A slow day just got slower,” our trader source tells us.

A spokesperson from the CME confirmed that there was a power surge this morning that has impacted the phone and internet for some traders at the Board of Trade North Building at 141 W Jackson Boulevard.

The spokesperson said that trading on CME markets hasn’t been impacted and that they are continuing to look into the situation.
