Nord Pool gives notice that the collateral requirements for power contracts will be increased during the Easter period. The adjustment is in accordance with the Standard Terms for Trading and Clearing in Nord Pool’s Day-ahead and Intraday markets.
The adjustment is made in order to cover the period of non-clearing days during Easter.
The adjusted collateral requirements will be increased by two days such that the Day Factor used in the Daily Margin calculation will be increased to four days.
This measure will effectively double members’ current collateral requirements.
The adjustment will be implemented, and the new requirements visible on the CASS Member UI, on the afternoon of Friday March 16. Members should then arrange to have sufficient increases in collateral in place as soon as possible, but no later than the absolute deadline of 11:00 CET Friday March 23.
The Day Factor will be reduced back to two days on Tuesday April 3, 2018 bringing collateral requirements back to the regular levels by the Wednesday April 4 11:00 CET deadline.
Included is the Nord Pool Clearing Schedule Easter 2018, outlining the dates over this period on which invoicing and cash settlements will occur.
