"As long as you qualify for the Non-Professional CME Globex data package, you will receive reduced exchange fees of $1 per month per CME Group exchange for level I data. Level II data is available for $5 per month per CME Group exchange. You can also receive all CME Group exchange's Globex data packaged together for $3 per month for Level I data or $15 for Level II data."
"This program replaced the CME Exchange Fee waiver program on March 1, 2014. Customer's who participated in the CME Exchange Fee waiver program as of February 28, 2014 were grandfathered in and will continue to receive fee waivers through the end of 2014."
Although interestingly on CME's groups webpage there's a link that if you're grandfathered you also get a further 50% discount if you are a Professional user (unfortunately not for non-pro usage).
Also working quite closely with the exchanges in a professional capacity / dayjob, I know they are all coming forward with pricing policies for non-display usage - all of them. This is less impactful to the average trader, however it will be for people doing business like tool providers and users that run external systems.
Non display usage will be any sort of use of their data that is outside of pure on chart/dom usage. Eg, for running calculations or feeding into an external system. See below quote form the exchange website as what the class as non display usage:
A. Automated Trading Systems (ATS) – systems that use CME Group information to trade
via automated systems, either for purposes of routing orders to CME Group or to other
B. Trade Internalization – the use of market data in systems that match trades within an
organization, as opposed to routing to the exchange
C. Internal Non-Display – use of data for systems processing and calculations, such as
portfolio management, credit and risk systems and all other forms of non-display use.
