7240A. Trade Report Processing
(a) Locked-in trades may be determined in the System by matching the trade information submitted by the Reporting Parties through one of the following methods:
(1) Trade by Trade Match
Both parties to the trade submit transaction data and the System performs an on-line match;
(2) Trade Acceptance
The Reporting Party enters its version of the trade into the System and the contra party reviews the trade report and accepts or declines the trade. An acceptance results in a locked-in trade. A declined trade report will be carried over at the end of trade date processing and will remain in the System, but will not be subject to the automatic lock-in process. A declined trade must be cancelled by the Reporting Party pursuant to Rule 6380A(g) if the trade was originally reported to the System for dissemination purposes.
(3) Automatic Lock-in
Any trade that remains open (i.e. unmatched or unaccepted) at the end of its entry day will be carried over for continued comparison and reconciliation. The System will automatically lock in and submit to DTCC as such any carried-over T to T+21 (calendar day) trade if it remains open as of 2:30 p.m. on the next business day. The System will carry over any T+22 (calendar day) or older "as/of" trade that remains open, but such trade will not be subject to the automatic lock-in process.
(b) T+N Trade Processing
T+N (or "as/of") entries may be submitted until 8:00 p.m. each business day. "As/of" reports of trades executed on non-business days and T+365 or greater trades will not be submitted to clearing by the System.
