New Features and Enhancements / Participation requirements

Eurex EnLight SMART Trading Capabilities

Eurex Exchange will introduce the EnLight SMART Request for Quote (RfQ) with T7 Release 8.1 on Monday, 29 June 2020. The SMART trading capabilities will allow Eurex EnLight customers to use exchange data to assist brokers and traders in targeting those trading participants most likely to have an interest in a specific RfQ. This will increase the probability of tighter spreads and better pricing outcomes for the end client or risk desk.

Eurex EnLight participants who want to be included as potential Eurex EnLight SMART respondents need to be assigned by their Admin user in the Admin GUI to the Eurex EnLight SMART Respondent Assignment list. Please keep in mind that the rankings and statistics of all users in a user group will be consolidated. Respondents who want to be included in these calculations will have to sign up and confirm/consent to the use of their data.

Furthermore, Eurex will provide the possibility to negotiate deals and make trades via Eurex EnLight without disclosing the identity of the requester and of the respondents. The Eurex EnLight anonymous negotiation will offer a new means of negotiation for requesters that are sensitive to inventory tracking or simply wish to remain anonymous.
