July 2018: month of the Mini-DAX

In July, our Mini-DAX® Futures performed impressively: with 676,223 cleared contracts, the number was up 56 percent from 432,370 in July 2017.

A total of 5,457,758 Mini-DAX® Futures contracts have already been traded this year. This corresponds to a daily average of over 36,000 contracts. Thanks to high liquidity, we have bid-ask spreads of only one tick in the main trading phase.

This development does not come as a surprise as the product allows for simplified trading of the DAX®. The contract value of EUR 5 per index point makes up a mere fifth of the DAX® Futures and equals the DAX® Options. On top, Eurex Clearing guarantees the fulfilment. At the same time, the fact that all market data is public guarantees the transparency in the trading of Mini-DAX® Futures.

We launched the Mini-DAX® Futures (FDXM®) in October 2015, which have since been available in parallel to the DAX® Futures.
