Happy anniversary: a successful first year of the Eurex trading hours extension into the Asian time zones

The FIA Asia conference in Singapore was the perfect surrounding to celebrate our extension of the trading hours for select liquid futures in the Asian time zones. More than 200 guests followed our invitation and attended our client appreciation event.

It was on 10 December 2018 when we started this initiative to fulfil growing customer demand for trading during the Asian trading hours. Let’s have a look of the most important milestones:

 

With the support of committed liquidity providers and more than 260 members the trading hours extension has been a success story right from the start: the accumulated traded contracts exceeded 7 million and we had an average quarterly growth of 15 percent in traded volumes in 2019. But let’s hear from our partners:

“Eurex Trading Hours Extension has successfully spurred client demands in Asia.” – Carolyn Chou, President, Yuanta Futures

“Flow Traders is the leading liquidity provider for Eurex in market making the full suite of products on-screen and directly to counterparties, by providing competitive quotes on blocks upon request. Eurex’s comprehensive suite of benchmark futures, available during the Asian time zones, helps investors to facilitate in- and outflows of funds, hedge existing equity exposure and enhance portfolio performance.” – Roeland Pot, Managing Director, Flow Traders Hong Kong

Everybody had a good time at the Monti on the Marina Bay. Once again, we would like to say “Thank you” to all our customers for their support and participation. We are looking forward to another year of success with our extended trading hours.
