CME Group, in collaboration with The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), has officially initiated their advanced cross-margining system. This development introduces capital efficiency improvements for clearing members involved in trading and settling both U.S. Treasury securities and CME Group Interest Rate futures.
The upgraded framework now permits eligible members from both CME Group and DTCC’s Government Securities Division to cross-margin a broader range of products, such as SOFR futures, Ultra 10-Year U.S. Treasury Note futures, and Ultra U.S. Treasury Bond futures, alongside FICC-cleared U.S. Treasury notes and bonds. Additionally, repo transactions backed by Treasury securities with over a year until maturity are also eligible for the enhanced arrangement.
