Since 19 December 2022, the Eurex Micro Product Suite includes a new offering, the Micro DAX® Options. This product offers a small notional on the German benchmark index DAX® and gives market participants easy access to the 40 most important German equities. The trend towards developing mini- and micro-versions of established benchmark contracts has taken hold on global stock exchanges over the last five years. They are aimed at investors with smaller investment budgets and allow larger institutional investors to fine-tune investment and hedging strategies while gaining access to benchmark indices.
Eurex responded to investor demand for smaller futures contracts by adding micro futures to its product range in 2021, one of the most successful product launches globally in recent years. Subsequently, Eurex also introduced mini and micro options.
In our current webcast Will Mitting, Managing Director, Acuiti, Daniel Mannion, Senior Equity Derivatives Sales Trader at Susquehanna International Group and Eugen Mohr, SVP; Equity & Index Sales EMEA at Eurex discuss among other topics the key characteristics and benefits of trading Micro-DAX® Options and how they can be used as an investment & hedging instrument?
