Eurex: Next Generation ETD Contracts
February 6, 2023
Eurex is aiming to introduce a more flexible set-up of Exchange Traded Derivatives (ETD) products by implementing an enhanced contract identification concept in February 2023 allowing more than one expiration per month on product level (sub-monthly contracts).
New features, changes and improvements:
- Integration of Weekly Expiring Instruments on Product Level
- Volatility Strategies in Single Stock Options
- Market-On-Close Futures T+X (Basis Trading in Equity Index Futures)
Weekly contracts will follow the new format of DDMMYYYY (current format: MMYYY), and will be listed under the same Product symbol as the Monthly contracts.
Example: OEB1, OEB2, OEB3, OEB4 will be listed under the OESB Product Symbol, and will be sequentially integrated.
Monthly Option: OESB Sep22
Sub-monthly Options, Week 1-5): OESB Sep22-W1Fr, OESB Sep22-W2Fr, OESB Sep22-W3Fr, OESB Sep22-W4Fr, OESB Sep22-W5Fr
Market on Close T+X will be eligible for MSCI Futures. An example is the following:
On T, Client trades the calendar between the daily future (T+1) and the standard future. After the T+1 session, the index close of T+1 is published by MSCI. On T+2, the T+1 index close is entered as the Final Settlement Price for the daily future. At the end, the Client has paid basis + index close for the standard future.
TT will support the sub-monthly contracts and T+X MSCI Futures in the UAT environment shortly after the T7 10.1 Upgrade on June 27, 2022. More details on the Production rollout plan will be confirmed after UAT support has been added.
