Nord Pool would like to make you aware that the day-factor parameters used in our margin model for the calculation of collateral calls is being adjusted from 1 to 3 for Nordics, Baltics and CE markets.
This temporary change in the adjustment of day factor is due to the holiday period in which banks remain closed during public holidays and settlement will not be run on these days.
The adjustment will be implemented, and the new requirements visible in clearing and settlement system (CASS) on Tuesday December 15. Members should then arrange to have sufficient increases in collateral in place as soon as possible, however, by no later than the absolute deadline of Friday 18 December at 11:00 AM CET.
The day factor will be adjusted back on Monday 4 January, 2021.
For more information regarding how this will impact your required collateral, please see the Nord Pool Risk Calculator.
