2.16 What is an ‘Offer’ or a ‘Bid’?

In an Outright ETR, the Offer is the fixed value amount that the Originator/Agent offers an ETR for sale on the Exchange. In RSA trades of either Performance ETR, or Managed ETR, an Offer is the fixed monthly percentage Discount of the Face Value of an ETR that the Originator/Agent offers for sale on the Exchange. The Investor makes a Bid against the Offer and if the Bid equals the Offer, the trade closes and becomes a Traded ETR
