After review and feedback from our customers, CME clearing has determined it appropriate to make a change to the settlement process surrounding the release of excess US Dollar cash for performance bond margins. Instead of automatically releasing this cash back, clearing members can withdraw excess US Dollar cash via the Clearing 21 System in the same manner as requesting non-cash collateral.
