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.
