No. 012/2018 EURO STOXX 50® Index Options (OESX): Introduction of intra-day non-disclosure limits

Eurex Deutschland and Eurex Zürich AG (collectively: the Eurex Exchanges) have decided to introduce intra-day non-disclosure limits for trades entered using Eurex Trade Entry Services for Block Trades in EURO STOXX 50® Index Options (OESX).

When reaching or exceeding a threshold value of 25,000 contracts, bilateral Block Trades can, electively, not be disclosed intraday by Eurex Exchange’s T7. Trades using the Multilateral Trade Registration Service are not impacted and these transactions will continue to be displayed intra-day.

Eurex Clearing will introduce a fee for elective non-disclosed Block Trades for EURO STOXX 50® Index Options (OESX). For details, please refer to the attached Eurex Clearing circular.

Non-disclosure of OTC Block Trades in EURO STOXX 50® Index Options (OESX) will come into effect on 26February 2018.

The Eurex Exchanges will review the non-disclosure limit after six months to assess the impact and determine on any revision to and/or extension of this measure.
