Eurex Exchange Readiness Newsflash | Reduction of simulation batches in T7

Dear Eurex Participant,

With this Newsflash we would like to provide some T7 simulation updates for the Cash and Derivatives Markets.

Deutsche Börse and Eurex Exchange are fully aware of the challenges imposed by the highly volatile environment in the recent weeks and have therefore decided to reduce the number of batches performed in the T7 simulations.

For the calendar weeks 15, 16 and 17 of 2020 the simulation batches for the T7 Cash and Derivatives Markets have been reduced and will hence take place once a week, namely on Wednesdays.

The current simulation calendar has been amended accordingly and is now reflecting changes for week 15 and 16. The forthcoming simulation calendars starting with calendar week 17 (starting 20 April to 30 August 2020) will be published within the first weeks in April.

If you have any further questions or comments please do not hesitate to contact your Key Account Manager or send an email to

Kind regards

Your Client Services Team
