On the Eurex exchange, the following distinction exists for Vola and Volatility trades:

  • A Vola trade is an OTC trade separately agreed to by both parties and approved by Eurex. This trade requires you to perform an options trade and hedge it with a futures trade. This Vola trade is the order type available in the Market Grid.
  • A Volatility strategy is an Options strategy you can create. These strategies consist of Options spread and Futures and are referred to as Vola for short. X_TRADER does not support entering Block orders for these strategies. X_TRADER does support Block orders for Futures and Options.
