TeraExchange Connects To CME Clearing To Provide Margin Relief To Customers Trading Interest Rate Swaps, Eurodollar And Treasury Futures

SUMMIT, N.J., June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TeraExchange , an electronic swap execution platform (SEF), today announced that its operations are fully connected to CME Clearing and are ready for trading of cleared interest rate and credit swaps. The relationship marks a critical step toward TeraExchange's goal of creating the most technologically advanced independent swaps trading venue, offering customers the utmost in access and transparency through an anonymous, all-to-all central-limit order book.

"Swaps traders are looking for deep liquidity, a seamless onboarding process and fast, reliable execution—all at an effective price point for participants," said Christian Martin, CEO of TeraExchange. "As we work to complete the process of becoming a SEF, TeraExchange is in a prime position to provide swaps traders with the solution they absolutely need."

In recent weeks, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) published final rules regarding swap execution facilities, swaps made available for trading (MAT) and block-sized transactions. Finalization of these rules starts the clock on the mandatory trading of the majority of derivatives on licensed venues like SEFs or designated contract markets (DCMs). By September 2013, proactive market participants will be connected to trading platforms and familiar with new market structures so that they are ready in the event that the most liquid swaps become mandatory to trade on SEFs or DCMs.

To meet the coming demand for fully compliant, highly liquid venues to trade cleared swaps, TeraExchange has built the most robust interest rate swap (IRS) and credit derivatives offering in the industry, with a pre-loaded list of more than 1,200 instruments. TeraExchange provides a frictionless onboarding process, flexible connectivity options and a complementary front-end trading solution to active market participants as an efficient, low-cost way to get up and running with SEF-based cleared trading.
