With this circular, we would like to inform you in detail about the Order Routing System (ORS) usage, as defined in § 60 of the Exchange Rules of Eurex Deutschland, and provided with Eurex Readiness Newsflash as of 9 June 2021.
An ORS is a software used by an Exchange Participant (ORS Provider) that enables the users of this software (”ORS User”) to transmit orders to the trading system of Eurex Deutschland under the user ID of an approved Eurex Exchange Trader admitted for the ORS Provider (herein and after referred to as an “ORS Filter Trader”).
On 17 June 2021, the Eurex Exchange Council approved the amended rules and the associated identification obligation that will become effective for Exchange Participants as of 22 November 2021 with T7 Release 10.0.
Start of production: 22 November 2021
