To provide additional transparency to Clearing Member Firms as to the status of their OTC trading account setups, CME Clearing will produce and post Account Reconciliation Files to each Clearing Member Firm’s secure FTP site effective immediately.
The file will display each trading account registered to trade OTC credit default swaps, interest rate swaps and FX swaps. Additionally, the file will show whether or not a particular trading account is completely setup or not.
Clearing Member staff involved in the onboarding of new OTC accounts will find this file particularly helpful when determining which trading accounts are completely setup and which accounts are still in process at CME Clearing.
The key field for each account is the “Complete” column. This column will indicate whether the account’s setup at CME Clearing is complete or not. Please note that this column does not indicate whether the account setup is complete at the affirmation platform.
The naming convention for the file is as follows –
Where ### equals the 3 digit CME-assigned CMF identifier
The files will be available each evening by 7:00 p.m. CT (8 p.m. ET).
Please note that these files are available in the Production environment only. CME Clearing will produce these files in the New Release (UAT) environment in the upcoming weeks. Additionally, CME Clearing will be adding the performance bond account (initial margin account) to the file soon.
If you have any further questions about this file, please contact the CME Client Services Team by telephone at 312-338-7112 or by email at email@example.com
