New micro futures from Eurex - a cost-efficient way to access European markets

In response to increasing interests from market participants for smaller-sized futures contracts, Eurex has launched a new micro product suite – Micro-DAX®, Micro-EURO STOXX 50® and Micro-SMI® Futures. The new micro futures have low daily margin rates and are a cost-efficient way for global investors to access the European equity index futures markets.

The Eurex micro contracts have a multiplier value of 1 which makes the contract value calculation simpler as it equates to the respective product index price. In comparison to the regular futures contracts, Eurex micro contract values are significantly smaller, further reducing potential portfolio tracking errors and providing investors with precise hedging opportunities.

The Eurex micro product suite is designed in parallel to the established EURO STOXX 50®, DAX® and SMI® Futures. These products are available in the different time zones, creating more trading and hedging opportunities for our global trading participants.

Fine-tune your index exposure with the new micro product suite from Eurex now.

“The new micro futures improve the offering for active private investors in Germany enormously. Smaller, scalable order sizes combined with regulated and transparent trading are decisive advantages for our customers.”
— Dominic Schorle, WH Selfinvest

“We’re proud to offer our customers new micro futures. By partnering with Eurex, we’re able to really set ourselves apart from other platforms.” 
— John Bartleman, President, TradeStation

“We are pleased to see the launch of the Eurex micro product suite that will attract more diversified investors into the market. Our clients have always hoped to trade the Micro DAX® Futures in particular and will be able to do so now.”
