Margin accounts have the effect of
A.Reducing the risk of one party regretting the deal and backing out
B. Ensuring funds are available to pay traders when they make a profit
C.Reducing systemic risk due to collapse of futures markets
D.All of the above
Answer: D

Initial margin requirements dramatically reduce the risk that a party will walk away from a futures contract. As a result they reduce the risk that the exchange clearing house will not have enough funds to pays profits to traders. Furthermore, if traders are less likely to suffer losses because of counterparty defaults there is less systemic risk.
