Clearing member

• Is a person that is associated as a responsible party for activities related to the clearance of futures, options, or securities transactions.

• A member firm of a clearing house. Each clearing member must also be a member of the exchange. Not all members of the exchange, however, are members of the clearing organization. All trades of a non-clearing member must be registered with, and eventually settled through, a clearing member.
