Market Continuity

Market Continuity

We at Deutsche Börse create trust in the markets of today and tomorrow. As reliable market infrastructure provider, trusted partner and caring employer, we take the global COVID-19 situation very seriously.

While so far our business has not been critically impacted, we continue to monitor the situation at all company locations and worldwide very closely and remain in close contact with our customers, suppliers, our regulators and the competent bodies to assess the situation at hand on a daily basis.
The safety of our employees and their families is our top priority at all locations. So is the provision of orderly and stable markets. We have deployed a preventive response plan that is in accordance with industry standards and regulatory requirements. Our mitigation plans comprise comprehensive measures to minimize infection risk of staff as well as an internal and external communication plan. We are confident that our business continuity measures will allow us to maintain our services at an acceptable level. We have no plans of market closure. Quite the opposite: We will work hard to keep our exchanges open even if the circumstances will worsen further. 

We assure our customers that we – the companies of Deutsche Börse Group – will remain their trusted partners and inform them proactively about any impact on our services.All communication channels available under normal circumstances will be used to share information.

Clarification of the scope of short selling bans imposed by European national authorities

Please note that with a view to index products traded on Eurex, the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) has clarified on its webpage the scope of the short selling bans introduced in March 2020 by several European national authorities. 
As explicitly stated by BaFin the short selling bans do not apply to derivatives on the Euro STOXX 50®, STOXX® Europe 600, MSCI Europe, MSCI EMU and Euro STOXX® Banks. Therefore, trading of these products on Eurex is not affected by the imposed restrictions on short selling.
