What credit limits and risk controls can I apply to traders?

Participant administrators can impose overall trading limits upon a desk via SeedPortal to limit the total exposure that the desk can enter into across all instruments. Desk limits are USD-denominated exposure limits that cap the total risk a desk can take on.

Admins can also assign instrument-level limits per instrument. This therefore means that a desk can control its potential exposure to a new product, if they are still exploring its risk profile.

All traders assigned to a desk share the limit of the desk and offsetting positions between traders will have offsetting efficiencies in margin obligations. 

Refer to the dedicated page on how the limits are used in our real-time credit system.
