Features and Enhancements / Participation requirements
With C7 Release 7.0 the following functional changes are envisaged:
FIXML broker migration
Eurex Clearing FIXML broker will be migrated from qpid C++ to qpid Java. Clearing Members and ISVs are required to upgrade the AMQP libraries in their software to the latest available versions. AMQP 0.10 version is no longer supported and members need to upgrade to AMQP version 1.0 to be able to connect.
Product tag in FIXML messages
This optional feature will be provided to Clearing Members who wish to distribute their large volume across multiple FIXML accounts and use a split via product. For this purpose, the product will be attached as a property to the FIXML messages in the same way as the MLID (message level identifier).
Default rule change for initial trade booking
With the current behavior the clearing account is taken by C7 without checking if the trading capacity provided a correct valid value for the clearing account on the T7 trading platform. With C7 Release 7.0 the trading capacity field will have a higher priority than the selected clearing account.
Change of Maintainability of Rate Identifier in C7
The field rate identifier, as contained in CustOrderHandlingInstr (tag 1031), will not be maintainable anymore with the introduction of C7 Release 7.0. As a consequence the field will be removed from Transaction Adjustment and Average Pricing Requests in GUI and also in FIXML requests. Valid Values entered in T7 are available in C7 and can be inquired.
Eurex Exchange is planning to introduce new inter-product spread (IPS) Fixed Income Futures based on the fixed-income Schatz Futures (FGBS) and the two-year bundle of the Euribor Futures (FEU3) consisting of eight consecutive maturities covering a time frame of two years. New values might be required on the existing fields “strategy type” and “strategy sub type”.
