Trading Hours Extension

Trading Hours Extension

Introduction and rationale of the initiative

Eurex plans to extend its trading and clearing hours (together: “extended service hours”) for selected equity index, fixed income, volatility and MSCI futures into the Asian time zone in December 2018. On this website, we will provide trading participants with information updates throughout the development of the project.

The extended service hours will allow Eurex to

  • cater for the increasing demand from clients with global business models
  • strengthen its position and member base in the Asia-Pacific region

All existing functionalities of T7, including all safeguards and plausibility checks, will be available during the extended trading hours. This also includes the T7 Trade Entry Services (TES). To ensure sufficient liquidity during the extended trading hours, Eurex will introduce an additional incentive program for Liquidity Providers for all products in scope. The current proposal of the program for Liquidity Providers can be requested via your Key Account Manager.

Information about onboarding and operational implementation

All existing Trading and Clearing Members will automatically have access to the extended service hours via existing memberships and infrastructure without signing additional admission documents.

In case trading participants want to have an additional trading location in asia to cover the asian timezone, please provide your Key Account Manager with the form: Announcement of Additional Trading Locations.

Corresponding mailings

All readiness news and documentation in regards of the Trading Hours Extension will be published on this website. Relevant information for Clearing Members on the Extended Service Hours can be found here: > Technology > Eurex Extended Service Hours.
