C7 Releases

C7 Release 9.0

This release offers improvements in the Advance Risk Protection context, in the exercise of options based on non-approved prices as well as segregation in product assignments for cash settled and physical settled products in EUR and CHF which will enable cash only settled products maintenance. Additionally, the cash collateral management will be enhanced with the introduction of a new “Type of Money” for intraday margin calls.

Value Based Average Pricing (VBAP) is no longer included in the C7 Release 9.0 in production based on market demand. Simulation of VBAP starts with the C7 Release 9.0 simulation phase to give clients enough time for testing.
 

Simulation start: 12 September 2022
Production start: 21 November 2022

Two ARP enhancements will be introduced with this release:

  • automatic release triggered as soon as the risk requirement falls below the maintained risk limit (simulation starting 10 Oct 2022) 

No implementation is required from Clearing Members.

Capacity split for physical/cash EUR and CHF products 

Separate capacities for cash only settled products will be created and assigned for EUR and CHF. Simulation for this feature will be available from 31 October 2022.

No manual activity is required by Clearing Members. The correct assignment and conversion will be performed by C7.

Enhancement non-approved prices on option exercise

This enhancement on manual option exercises in C7 GUI will make the Clearing Member aware that the price is based on non-approved (“N”) price. 


Current (“C”) and previous (“P”) price flag values will be removed and replaced by a new non-approved (“N”) value on the C7 GUI´s “Exercise Overview” window. Simulation for this feature will be available starting 31 October 2022.


No FIXML or report changes. GUI changes only prompting new checkbox on the C7 GUI´s “Exercise Overview” window.

  • “Account filter” will be renamed to “RNU”

No FIXML or report impact.
 

Rename “Capacity Product Assignment Inquire” to “Product Inquire”

The main privilege for product inquire “Capacity Product Assignment Inquire” (B006INQ) provides information about products and assignment of products to capacities. This privilege will be renamed from “Capacity Product Assignment Inquire” to “Product Inquire”.

No FIXML or report impact.

Value Based Average Pricing (VBAP)

  • simulation on 28 October 2022
  • production on 22 May 2023

VBAP leads to changes in C7 FIXML, GUI and reports. FIXML and XML reports are only affected if the functionality is used. CSV reports are impacted in all cases

  • production will become effective in May 2023
