Trading Hours Extension

Introduction and rationale of the initiative

Eurex extended its trading and clearing hours (together: “extended service hours”) for selected benchmark futures and MSCI futures:

  • Fixed Income Futures: Buxl (FGBX), Bund (FGBL), Bobl (FGBM), Schatz (FGBS)
  • Equity Index Futures: Eurostoxx50 (FESX), DAX (FDAX), miniDAX (FDXM), all Eurex listed MSCI Futures (FMxx)

into the Asian time zone on Monday, 10 December 2018. The extended service hours will allow Eurex to

  • cater for the increasing demand from clients with global business models
  • strengthen its position and member base in the Asia-Pacific region

All existing functionalities of T7, including all safeguards and plausibility checks, will be available during the extended trading hours. This also includes the T7 Trade Entry Services (TES). To ensure sufficient liquidity during the extended trading hours, Eurex will introduce an additional incentive program for Liquidity Providers for all products in scope. The current proposal of the program for Liquidity Providers can be requested via your Key Account Manager.

Information about onboarding and operational implementation

All existing Trading and Clearing Members will automatically have access to the extended service hours via existing memberships and infrastructure without signing additional admission documents.

In case trading participants want to have an additional trading location in asia to cover the asian timezone, please provide your Key Account Manager with the form: Announcement of Additional Trading Locations.
