Nord Pool would like to inform members of a change to the day factor risk parameter used in our margin model for the calculation of collateral calls.
This will be adjusted from two days to three days, effective for collateral calls due 22 November 2018 at 11:00 CET.
The reason for the adjustment is the general surge in market prices compared to recent years, narrowing the spread between the risk price used in Nord Pool’s collateral model and average market price.
The adjustment is being implemented in accordance with section 15.4 of the clearing rules. The new collateral requirements will be visible in the clearing and settlement system (CASS) after the settlement run on 21 November 2018.
The adjusted parameters are also published online.
