Must be a Chicago thing, given similar problems at ARCA Odd, too, that there appears to be nothing anywhere about the problem. Not the CME web site nor the newswires. You'd think they could pick up the phone and call the DJ desk with status info, as theoretically important as the futures are to the world. Even more puzzling is that T&S data on the CME site shows lots of trades occuring during the supposed downtime. Doesn't make any sense. Two of my other chart sources confirm no trades, though.
