As derivable from its name one or more trades can be transferred. The transfer is always a transfer to a different Clearing Member ID. A trade transfer always terminates the existing trade and re-opens a new trade with the same attributes and a new trade id.
A trade transfer can be performed via the Eurex OTC Clear GUI (Production/Simulation). It is the same process for both environments.
A Clearing Member or Disclosed Client with system access to the EurexOTC Clear GUI.
For each transfer, a member needs two users with respective access rights for the OTC Clear GUI to initiate and confirm the action.
Clearing Member or Disclosed Clients with system access can trigger the transfer.
