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 Derivatives Markets are either Pre-Trading or Pre-Clearing Limits. Therefore, Trading Limits for ECC Derivatives Markets rely partly on the available Pre-Trading Limit functionalities of ECC’s Partner Exchanges’ trading systems and partly on Pre-Clearing Limits, both as per the relevant rules and regulations governing ECC’s Partner Exchanges’ trading processes.

    The following table provides an overview of limit implementation on ECC-cleared Derivatives Markets.
