May monthly figures at Eurex and EEX

- May saw a fall in the number of traded derivatives contracts at Eurex while OTC Clearing, and the GC Pooling market at Eurex Repo, showed strong growth.
- Traded derivatives contracts down due to effects of the ongoing pandemic, including reduced interest rates, as well as exceptionally high volume during this period last year.
 

All classes of financial derivatives at Eurex showed declines in the number of traded contracts in May 2020 compared to May 2019, with the largest fall coming in European equity derivatives – down 58% year-on-year.

The OTC Clearing space continues to report very positive figures. Notional outstanding and average daily cleared volumes were up 24% and 42%, respectively, in May 2020 compared to the same month last year. Interest rates swaps were a standout performer, with average daily cleared volumes up 84% year-on-year in May 2020.
 
At Eurex Repo, the electronic market for secured funding and financing, the GC Pooling market grew 81% year-on-year in May, with 102.5 billion EUR of average term-adjusted volume compared to 56.2 billion EUR in May 2019.

EEX, the Leipzig-based energy exchange, posted growth in traded electricity volumes – up 14% compared to the same month last year – while reductions in volumes were seen in gas and emissions trading.
