CME Clearing accepts shares of certain equity stocks for customer and house segregated performance bond collateral. CME Clearing implemented its Stock Program to enable clearing members to post shares of selected stock with the Clearing House to satisfy performance bond requirements.
CME Clearing’s performance bond requirements consist of two amounts: core performance bond requirements and concentration performance bond requirements. Concentration performance bond requirements are set from time to time and are equal to the portion of the total performance bond requirement that may be met using concentration collateral.
