Types of Participation

The FEX Global Operating Rules recognise two participation categories: Trading Participants and Clearing Entities.

An organisation can apply to be:

  • a Trading Participant;
  • a Clearing Entity; or
  • both a Trading Participant and a Clearing Entity.

Trading Participants

Trading participants can be either:

  • a standard Trading Participant, who is authorised to transact on behalf of clients as well as on their own behalf,
  • or a Principal Trader, who may only transact on their own account and not on behalf of clients.

Each applicant for Trading Participant designation must demonstrate that they have established or are establishing clearing and settlement arrangements with a Clearing Entity recognised by both FEX Global and CME before their Trading Participant status will be approved.

Where a Trading Participant seeks to be recognised by FEX Global as a market maker, a separate and additional arrangement is required. This arrangement may be undertaken in parallel with a participant’s application to be a Principal Trader.

More details regarding becoming a Trading Participant can be found here.

Clearing Entities

CME provides FEX Global Market with Clearing and Settlement services for its markets.

Any entity applying to be a Clearing Entity on the FEX Global Market will thus need to establish membership with CME directly. A Clearing Entity will also need to ensure that the NYMEX membership granted by the CME is extended to specifically include the FEX Global market.

A clearing organisation will need to apply to FEX Global to be recognised as a Clearing Entity under the FEX Global Operating Rules. 

More details regarding becoming a Clearing Entity can be found here.
