Trader admission

Trader admission

Any person that shall be authorized to trade at Eurex Deutschland on behalf of a member needs to be admitted by Eurex Deutschland as exchange trader first.

The number of traders of an Eurex Deutschland exchange participant is not limited, but all exchange participants must have at least one admitted trader in order to comply with Eurex Deutschland admission requirements.

In order to fulfill the admission requirements of Eurex Deutschland, at least one trader per company must, however, be admitted. Furthermore, admission as an exchange trader is only possible for one company admitted. If an exchange trader changes over to another company, the trader admission linked to the first company must be returned by written notification and a new exchange trader admission must be applied for by the new company.

Persons who are to be entitled to trade at Eurex Deutschland for an admitted company in accordance with passage 3 number 3.2 of Eurex Deutschland/Zürich Exchange Rules, must be reliable and have the necessary skills.
