Mutual offset system

A margining system for derivatives exchanges, in which positions on different exchanges can be offset with each other. If a participant has a long position on one exchange but a short position on another in a fungible (compatible) contract, he can reduce (or eliminate) margin payments on one exchange because overall exposure has been reduced by netting over the two exchanges.
