With circular 044/18 Eurex Clearing announced the introduction of the Extended Service Hours. In December 2018 Eurex Deutschland and Eurex Clearing will extend its trading and clearing hours to also cover the Asian time zone.
The market opening for these products will be moved forward to 01:00 CET/02:00 CEST (08:00 Singapore time), starting with a Pre-Trading phase and an Opening Auction, before Continuous Trading is planned to begin at 01:15 CET/02:15 CEST (08:15 Singapore time). All Eurex Trading and Clearing Members will automatically have access to the extended service hours via existing memberships and infrastructure. Additional admission documents are not required to participate the the Extended Service Hours.
