Dear Clearing Member,
As announced in Eurex Clearing Circular 078/21, the “Next Generation ETD Contracts” project will provide a full-scope Eurex simulation environment starting end of January 2022 (with software updates for C7 and Prisma).
Eurex will enhance the level concept for all Eurex Clearing Members and Trading Participants by switching the Contract Validation mapped to their Member ID in simulation to “Level 2” (LVL2) (i.e. Contract Date or Expiration Date = YYYY MM DD).
By updating the Contract Validation to LVL2, Participants will have access to sub-monthly contracts in the Eurex simulation environment.
To provide sufficient testing opportunities during the five-months lasting Next Generation ETD Contracts Member Simulation, Eurex will introduce sub-monthly expiring contracts in two activation waves.
The first activation wave (including contracts for all three NextGen business initiatives) will be performed in February 2022 and the second activation wave will be executed in May 2022. Activation of sub-monthly expiring contracts will take place in selected and already existing products which will be equipped with sub-monthly contract creation cycles.
