Daily contract quantity (DCQ)

In a buyer’s nomination contract, this is the average amount the buyer can have in its daily nominations. The maximum rate at which the buyer can ask the seller to deliver (see delivery capacity) is a function of the DCQ and the swing. A similar rule exists in a seller’s nomination contract, where it is called the estimated daily contract quantity.
