What is NETTING?

Mutual obligations settled among involved parties. Two involved parties is known as a bilateral netting. With three or more parties acting as a clearing house, it is known as a multilateral netting. With money involved, the net difference is carried forward, not the gross amounts. Foreign exchange trading, futures trading, and options trading are common activities in netting.
