Eurex Clearing introduced the EurexOTC Clear Release 9.0 on Monday, 3 December 2018. The enhancements are available in the simulation environment since Wednesday, 17 October 2018. The Release 9.0 expands the EurexOTC Clear Service for all products.
The EurexOTC Clear GUI has been enhanced with an additional field for the internal trade ID. Thereby, Clearing Members are able to see and maintain the "Internal RC Trade Id" for Registered Customers and the “Internal CB Trade Id” for Clearing Brokers (for Registered Customers, the column „Internal CB Trade Id“ will be empty).
With Release 9.0, the netting criteria for Variable Notional Swaps (VNS) has been relaxed: by softening the restriction, also non-VNS shall be netted with VNS, however only VNS with Netting Levels 1 and 2 qualify, as before.
The novation buffer logic that covers all asset classes has been enhanced to include an OTC-specific component that cannot be consumed by changing margin requirements stemming from non-OTC business. In line with the previous process, the novation buffer has been set by Eurex Clearing at its sole discretion. Clearing Members may request the OTC-specific novation buffer to be changed (e.g. to be set to zero on account level), but any such change will be subject to Eurex Clearing’s prior approval.
As announced by the European Money Markets Institute (EMMI), the Euribor® Fixings 2W, 2M, 9M has been decommissioned in 2018. These changes are relevant for EurexOTC IRS Members and OTC Currency Product Members.
Please also consider that Eurex Clearing has moved payment services to the C7 architecture to reduce infrastructure complexity with the C7 Release 4.1. This migration has an impact on cash reports provided to Eurex Clearing’s clients. The existing report CD010 was replaced with the new CD710 reports which is available in three formats: print version, xml and csv. Further details are communicated via separate Eurex Clearing circulars regarding the C7 clearing system.
