Our FX Futures and Options combine best-practice OTC market conventions with the transparency of exchange-traded derivatives. Eurex enables trading of FX Derivatives and more than 2,000 products across nine asset classes on one single platform. All cleared via Eurex Clearing and for FX Derivatives physically delivered through the Continuous Linked Settlement (CLS) system.

FX Futures and Options are now fully integrated into Eurex Clearing Prisma, our portfolio-based margining approach. Eurex Clearing Prisma calculates combined risks across all markets cleared by Eurex Clearing and enables cross margining between products as well as across markets.
