Release date: 11 Apr 2018 | Eurex Exchange

No. 023/2018 Extension of trading hours for selected benchmark futures and MSCI futures to 21 hours

Eurex Deutschland plans to extend its trading hours for selected equity index, fixed income, volatility and MSCI futures into the Asian time zone in December 2018.

The extended trading hours will allow market participants to implement more precise hedging techniques, to run relative value/cross-market strategies and to act on market news or major events outside the European core trading hours.

All Trading Participants and Clearing Members can participate during the extended service hours via existing memberships and infrastructure.

For the purpose of liquidity provision during the extended trading hours, Eurex Deutschland plans to introduce an additional incentive programme for Liquidity Providers.

This circular informs Trading Participants about key design elements, the products in scope and planned operational support during the extended service hours.

This is the first circular on the planned extension of trading hours. Further information on the extension of clearing and risk service hours will be provided shortly.
