  3. 3. 1.0 Introduction The Asset Management and Banking system permits firms to enter pledge and withdrawal instructions for collateral and review the status of those transactions on-line. It eliminates use of paper-based transactions for collateral substitutions. Firms can submit Treasury Securities, Letters of Credit, Stock, IEF, foreign currency, US dollars and other approved collateral to: • Replace the USD cash debited directly from their performance bond accounts and/or existing letters of credit/Treasury securities/approved collateral on deposit. • Anticipate a performance bond call for core performance bond requirements to be credited to the appropriate Clearing Organization account. 2.0 Getting Started 2.1. Security Requirements To request access to the Asset Management & Banking System, fax an On-Line System Access Request Form to Customer Support Group at (312) 338-2626. (Blank forms are available on the Client Management web site.) Please allow 24-48 hours for processing. 2.2. Main Functions - Asset Management & Banking System • Enter Asset Management Transactions • View Assets on Deposit The screens which contain this data are accessed via the Asset Management Main Menu and are described as follows: • Transactions allows you to enter data notifying the CME Clearing of your intent to pledge, amend or withdraw assets (collateral). On the Daily Transaction List screen, you can review and verify the status of all transactions entered on that business day. • Withdrawal Instructions allows you to enter default withdrawal bank account numbers and special instructions. • Assets on Deposit lists individual asset groups for each individual asset type on deposit. • Asset Summary displays the sub-totaled values for each asset group. • Currency Summary displays the sub-totaled values for each currency type, both foreign and domestic. • Currency Requirements displays both summary and detailed performance bond requirements in US dollars and across all foreign currencies. • Settlement Variation displays both summary and detailed variation requirements for each settlement session. • Banking Requirements displays the net pay or collect value for performance bond for a particular performance bond cycle. • Banking Instruction List displays account and bank location information for withdrawal instructions. • Bank List displays the list of banks approved for sending or receiving collateral to CME Group safekeeping accounts.

Firms can add, withdraw, or transfer IEF funds. • Clr Org Confirm/Reject is used by CME Clearing to indicate whether the transaction has been confirmed or rejected. Selecting Criteria for Inquiry or Entry Once you select a screen or function, the data is displayed according to the criteria you have selected from the various List Boxes in the Account Selection window. • To enter selection criteria, you must click on the small down arrow key located next to the list box, to reveal the criteria available for that list box. • To select an item in the list box, just click on the name and it will be highlighted in reverse color.

Note: CNSEG is only used for CME Auction Markets. • Asset Type - Collateral accepted by the CME Group includes: Cash "CASH", Letters of Credit "LOC", US Treasury Securities "TBILL,” “TNOTE,” “TBOND" and Canadian Treasury Securities, “C-BILL,” “C-BONDS,” Interest Earning Facility “IEF” and Stock. A complete listing may be obtained from the Risk Unit of CME Clearing. • Account Type - Performance Bond “PB” or Security Deposit ” SECR.” • Bus Func - Business functions including clearing “CLR,” Mutual Offset with SIMEX “MOSSX,” Security Deposit “SECR,” and Cross-margining with the OCC “XMOCC.” Client Management Training Services 3

Futures are a leveraged investment, and because only a percentage of a contract’s value is required to trade, it is possible to lose more than the amount of money deposited for a futures position. Therefore, traders should only use funds that they can afford to lose without affecting their lifestyles. And only a portion of those funds should be devoted to any one trade because they cannot expect to profit on every trade. All references to options refer to options on futures.
