The amount of money or collateral deposited by a client with his broker, or by a clearing firm with CME Clearing on open futures or options contracts before a customer can trade. The performance bond is not a part payment on a purchase.1. Initial performance bond is the total amount of margin per contract required by the broker when an account is opened, or when the equity in the account falls below CME Clearing minimum maintenance requirements.2. Maintenance performance bond is a sum which must be maintained on deposit at all times. If a customer's equity in any futures position falls below the maintenance level because of adverse price movement, the broker must issue a margin call to the minimum CME Clearing initial margin requirement to restore the customer's equity. Consult the Contract Specifications for margin requirements of specific contracts. Chicago Mercantile Exchange Glossary
