No I was referencing your earlier comment on messaging limits and the ratios mentioned. I'm coding things that quote and cancel/replace often (often for me at least) and it sounds like you are talking about a hard limit on CME messaging. What is the ratio in reference to?
Every Class A firm that deals with CME clearing has to stay within a certain ratio. The ratio is the messages (orders, modifies, cancels) to the volume of the trades. The CME sends a notice to your firm the day after a violation and they identify the sub account with the FIX SenderSubID field. I think they use other ways to identify your account.
Then somebody gets sent an email to pay the fine. Not really sure about that part.
