3. Details

Non-disclosure is an existing, optional service for EnLight and TES Block Trade transactions with very high transaction volumes. This service is already offered for index options on the DAX® (ODAX), EURO STOXX® Banks (OESB) or SMI® (OSMI), among others.

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.

As announced in Eurex circular 052/20, Eurex Deutschland has decided 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).
