Eurex Clearing Circular 001/22 Equity index derivatives: Introduction of Eurex Daily Futures on KOSPI 200 Weekly Options

1. Introduction

Effective 28 March 2022, Eurex Clearing will offer clearing services for Daily Futures on KOSPI 200 Weekly Options (OKW1/3/4/5) introduced at Eurex Deutschland. 

In this context, the following measure will apply effective 28 March 2022:

  • Amendments of the Price List of Eurex Clearing AG (Price List) regarding the inclusion of Daily Futures on KOSPI 200 Futures.

The following provisions will be amended as outlined in Attachment 2:

  • Numbers 3.1 and of the Price List.

The simulation environment is planned to be available from 25 February 2022.

Please refer to Eurex circular 006/22 for detailed trading-related information as well as the amendments of the relevant Rules and Regulations of Eurex Deutschland.

Simulation start: 25 February 2022
Production start: 28 March 2022

2. Required action

Similar Korean won (KRW) products are currently traded on the Eurex/KRX Link:

  • Daily Futures on KOSPI 200 Options (OKS2)
  • Daily Futures on Mini-KOSPI 200 Futures (FMK2)
  • Daily Futures on KOSPI 200 Futures (FBK2).

The requirement for Clearing Members is the same as for clearing the existing Eurex KOSPI products, i.e. having a KRW payment infrastructure ready prior to the activation for clearing the KRW capacity. Therefore, for Clearing Members who already clear KOSPI products, no additional action is required.

For Clearing Members who currently do not clear existing KOSPI products and would like to do so, the required action is to follow existing onboarding procedures to set up a clearing account in KRW. For this purpose, please contact your Clearing Key Account Manager or write to

Clients are encouraged to participate in the simulation phase.
