Definitions:

“Notional” is the sum of the notional for trades where both buyer and seller agree to clear the transaction. This figure is one sided. For example if A and B agree to clear 1 transaction for €2,000,000 notional and C and D agree to clear 1 transaction for €3,000,000 notional and A and C agree to clear 1 transaction for €8,000,000 notional the volume is €13,000,000 notional. Similarly the "Number of Transactions" figure represents one side and would be 3 in this example.

“Open Interest” is the sum of all clearing participants’ outstanding net long positions per contract against LCH SA, which results in single sided amounts.
