TeraExchange offers market participants an anonymous central limit order book (CLOB) for execution of a wide range of clearable swaps, as well as request-for-quote (RFQ), request-for-market (RFM) and indications of interest (IOI). Clearable swaps that can be traded on TeraExchange include interest rate swaps, credit default swap indices, and FX cash-settled and non-deliverable forwards. Bilateral contracts include equity derivatives and bitcoin forwards.
The company plays an important role by increasing the certainty of clearing, helping participants meet the regulatory goals of increasing transparency, accountability and oversight in the derivatives markets. TeraExchange also provides the world's first regulated bitcoin index - the Tera Bitcoin Price Index (TeraBit) - creating a benchmark for portfolio valuation.
TeraExchange has an extensive range of approved derivative instruments for clearing by connected clearing houses, including CME and LCH.Clearnet.
In addition, TeraExchange offers two complementary trading tools for market participants. TeraDirect is a sophisticated front-end execution management system that displays all information and functionality needed to trade on TeraExchange. TeraCheck is a proprietary pre-trade credit risk management engine that allows market participants and their clearing members to enter and maintain appropriate risk controls and promotes the firmness of orders and finality of trade execution.
