Problem links[edit]

"Validation, delivery, and settlement" is the usual listing of back office services provided by clearinghouses. But putting them in as links here yielded amusing results. The "delivery" link especially so -- it sends me to an article on childbirth. I'll need to do some more work to give the financial significance of such terms their props.

Could someone spell out the meaning of DCO (DERIVATIVES CLEARING ORGANIZATIONS) in this context? Ben Kovitz 08:05, 12 Dec 2004 (UTC)

merge clearing (finance) definition?[edit]

There is a seperate section called Clearing (finance) that has more or less the same information as this entry. Should they be merged?

Clearinghouse cure article for basics[edit]

The Clearinghouse Cure is one of the more basic explanations of clearinghouses and their history; although it comes from a right-wing think tank, I think the author makes some good points. Will try to add it later. Incidentally, I want to move this article to "Clearinghouse (finance)" and merge the "clearing (finance)" article into it.II | (t - c) 19:36, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

History[edit]

The clearing house of the pre-20th century settled banknotes of different banks. I am not sure what other functions they performed then and how the evolved into what they are today. Perhaps someone could add a sentence or two.Phmoreno (talk) 13:06, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

Standard Spelling of Term Is *Clearinghouse*.[edit]

The term clearinghouse, as used by U.S. financial institutions, is one word, not two. Cf. Merriam-Webster,[1] and many other dictionaries and reference works.

If the entry is meant to retain a common spelling in other countries, then shouldn't the U.S. spelling be listed as an alternate at the beginning of the article, since countless writers in the States will look up the term on Wikipedia and copy the spelling verbatim without verifying it elsewhere?
