6A.4A.1

Where a Clearing Member collects margins from customer in connection with any Exchange Trade, regardless of whether it is required to under the Clearing Rules, the following shall apply:

(1) subject to Rule 6A.3.6, nothing in these Clearing Rules prohibits a Clearing Member from imposing margin requirements, hair-cut rates, payment periods for customers to deposit collateral, valuations of positions and collateral, and making calls for additional margins, as it sees fit;
(2) if a Clearing Member is unable to contact a customer to call for margins in respect of a Novated Contract, a written notice sent to the customer at the most recent address furnished by the customer to the Clearing Member shall be deemed sufficient; and
(3) where a customer fails to meet such margin that the Clearing Member may call from the customer, the Clearing Member may take actions as it deems appropriate, without giving notice to the customer, to reduce its exposure to the customer. Such actions may include liquidating all or such part of the customer's collateral deposited with the Clearing Member, or taking action to offset all or such part of the customer's positions. CDP may also order such Clearing Member to immediately take such action to offset all or such part of the positions of the customer to rectify the deficiency.
