With effect from 20 March 2023, U.S. direct access tradability of the following product will be withdrawn for U.S. Eurex Participants:
MSCI Poland Index Futures (NTR)
Cash USD - CFTC
2. Required action
All Trading Participants that have open positions in MSCI Poland Index Futures (NTR) must comply with applicable Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) regulation once these Futures contracts transition to Foreign Security Futures Products (FSFPs).
The above MSCI Poland Index Futures (NTR) will transition from non-narrow-based security index futures to narrow-based security index futures effective at the close of trading of 3 April 2023. Accordingly, the CFTC will be withdrawing its non-narrow-based certification for the contracts at these upcoming dates.
After the close of trading on 3 April 2023, MSCI Poland Index Futures (NTR) contracts will be security futures and must therefore be traded in accordance with both the U.S. securities and commodity futures laws.
Eurex Exchange notes that, in order to ensure compliance, its 20 March 2023 withdrawal of direct access tradability for U.S. Eurex Participants is in advance of the official date of the MSCI Poland Index’s transition to a narrow-based security index.
Eurex Exchange will be evaluating whether MSCI Poland Index Futures meet the eligibility requirements of the 2009 SEC Order governing FSFPs and the Commodity Exchange Act. If MSCI Poland Index Futures meet the eligibility requirements, they will be listed on Eurex Exchange’s list of eligible FSFPs, updated monthly, available on the Eurex website www.eurex.com under the following link:
