    • 7.14.1

      If the recap ledger of any Clearing Member shows a Net Debit Balance against such Clearing Member:

      (a) and if it appears to the Clearing House that the Clearing Member will have insufficient cash margin held by the Clearing House to apply towards payment of the Clearing Member's Net Debit Balance, the Clearing Member shall receive margin call and be required to deposit additional cash collateral to cover the shortage in such cash margin;
      (b) payment of such New Debit Balance shall be effected at the Confirmation Cut Off Time, by the Clearing House applying the Clearing Member's cash margin held with the Clearing House towards payment of such Net Debit Balance. If, at the Confirmation Cut Off Time, the Clearing Member has insufficient cash margin held with the Clearing House to apply towards payment of the full Net Debit Balance, all of such cash margin will, at the Confirmation Cut Off Time, be applied towards payment of such portion of the Net Debit Balance as it covers; and
      (c) such application shall constitute final and irrevocable settlement of the Clearing Member's obligation to pay such Net Debit Balance or such portion of the Net Debit Balance (as the case may be) to the Clearing House.

      Violation of this Rule may constitute a major offence.

    • 7.14.2

      If the recap ledger of any Clearing Member shows a Net Credit Balance in favour of such Clearing Member payment of such Net Credit Balance shall be effected at the Confirmation Cut Off Time, by the Clearing House crediting the Net Credit Balance directly to the Clearing Member's cash margin held with the Clearing House. Such crediting shall constitute final and irrevocable settlement of the Clearing House's obligation to pay such Net Credit Balance to the Clearing Member.
