Trading with Operating Imbalance Accounts

For example, if the Trade Period is in June, change the imbalance month to March. Failure to change the month and year when trading between Operating Imbalance accounts will result in a date error message.

Remember, Operating Imbalance accounts require a different imbalance month and year.
