1.   Introduction

The Management Board of Eurex Deutschland decided, with effect from 3 August 2020, to introduce intra-day non-disclosure limits for Block Trades entered using the Eurex T7 Entry Services (TES) in weekly index options on the DAX® (ODX1/2/4/5), EURO STOXX® 50 (OES1/2/4/5, OMSX), EURO STOXX® Banks (OEB1/2/4/5) or SMI® (OSM1/2/4/5).

  • Production start: 3 August 2020

2.   Required action

There is no required action. Trading Participants may choose between intra-day disclosure and non-disclosure in the Block Trade entry window of the T7 Trader GUI for Block Trades in the weekly index options resp. month-end options on DAX®, EURO STOXX® 50, EURO STOXX® Banks or SMI®.

3.   Details

Non-disclosure is an optional feature for transactions above a certain volume threshold. Where this threshold is reached or exceeded, the entering trader of bilateral TES or EnLight trades can select intraday publication or non-disclosure by Eurex Exchange’s T7 for these trades. The default setting for transactions above a certain volume threshold is set to non-disclosure in T7.
