Spot Markets

ECC’s trading limit services allow Clearing Members to set trading limits at Partner Exchanges through ECC as a central intermediary.

Trading Limits for ECC Spot Markets are pre-trading limits, i.e. implemented by ECC’s Partner Exchanges in their respective trading systems. Therefore, the Trading Limits for ECC Spot Markets fully rely on the available functionalities of the trading systems respectively the relevant rules and regulations governing the trading processes.

New trading limits and changes to existing limits can only be submitted by authorized persons. To authorize persons the form T10 "Application for setup/modification/deletion of user-IDs and of user for ECC risk management services" is to be used.
