Features and Enhancements / Participation requirements

With C7 Release 7.0.1 the following functional and technical changes are being introduced: 

The following items refer to FIXML Settlement Prices in broadcast messages published by C7. Most of the back-office systems can handle the below changes without making any implementations on their side.

For preparation, clients need to check if their AMQP back office library is compatible with the C7 changes and make the necessary adjustments if required.

  • Settlement Price Corrections
    With the new behaviour, a price update will always trigger to publish all prices of the respective product and a changed timestamp. 
  • Removal of final settlement price message for futures
    The final settlement price message for futures will not be provided anymore since it corresponds to the daily settlement price of the front month future contract and therefore already contained in the daily settlement price message.
  • Introduction of expiration date to daily settlement prices
    Expiration date will be added to all contract related price messages such as the daily settlement price. 
  • Alignment of SenderCompID 
    SenderCompID field of the FIXML header will replace the current value “CCP” by the actual clearing house of the product (i.e. “ECAG” or “ECC”) in order to align with all other FIXML messages created in C7.

In addition to the FIXML broadcast messages described above, other items in scope are:

  • Introduction of new Trade Type
    Eurex Clearing will introduce a new TES Trade Type in order to support Compression trades in 2021.
