January continues the positive trend: Eurex Exchange up by 6 percent

Eurex Exchange, Europe’s largest derivatives exchange and part of Deutsche Börse Group, continued its upward trend in January. The number of traded contracts reached 147.8 million compared to 139.3 million in January 2018. This is an increase of 6 percent.

The reason for this is mainly the positive development in European equity derivatives, which increased by 36 percent from 25.9 million in January 2018 to 35.2 million in January 2019.

January also saw a new monthly record for Equity Dividend Futures with 1.39 million traded contracts and a daily record on 31 January with 138.7k traded contracts.

The European Energy Exchange (EEX), the leading energy exchange in Europe, also saw significantly increases in trading volumes in power and emissions. In January 2019, volumes on EEX Group’s spot and derivatives markets increased by 40 percent to 489.0 TWh (350.0 TWh in January 2018).

Eurex Repo, the leading provider for international financing in the secured money market business (repo and securities lending), saw an overall increase of 23.6 percent in average outstanding volume in the Repo market in comparison to January 2018.
