Mini-DAX®. Maximum record volume.

Release date: 05 Mar 2018 | Eurex Exchange

Mini-DAX®. Maximum record volume.

New daily record and new monthly records in February.

February turned out to be a record month for our Mini-DAX® Futures. For the first time ever, they not only reached a new daily record with 113,000 traded contracts on 6 February, they also jumped to a new monthly high of >900,000 traded contracts in the same month. That means Mini-DAX® Futures for the first time traded 44% of the DAX® Futures volume. This significant jump in activity coincided with the recent volatile sessions; evidence that the Mini-DAX® Futures are well supported and offer customers good liquidity and price transparency through all market conditions.


Last but not least, the Open Interest of the Mini-DAX® reached a new month end record of >20.000, based on bigger positions build up by some big banks. 

Since October 2015, we offer Mini-DAX® Futures (FDXM) in parallel to the popular DAX® Futures (FDAX) with a lower contract value of just EUR 5. More than 14 million contracts have been traded since launch.
