What are Dynamic Circuit Breakers? Dynamic Circuit Breakers  monitor for significant price movements during a trading session. DCBs define an upper and lower limit of how far an instrument is allowed to move in a configured time interval. What happens if a Dynamic Circuit Breaker is triggered? If triggered in the primary contract market (lead month), all associated contract markets immediately transition into a two minute pre-open state. There is no monitoring period. The GCC designates the lead month for the primary contract.  If triggered in a non-primary month, only the triggering contract will reserve. Click here to View the Current Price Limits >>
