Position limits apply only to long positions in the front month contracts of the products concerned. Reporting limits will be valid from 26 February 2021 after close of trading until 3 March 2021 after close of trading.
Position limits will be valid from 4 March 2021, start of trading, until expiration of the March contract on 8 March 2021. Long positions in March 2021 contracts must therefore be within the prescribed limits at start of trading on 4 March 2021.
The measure taken by Eurex Deutschland is based on § 14 Paragraph 1 of the Exchange Rules of Eurex Deutschland (Eurex Exchange Rules). The limits will constantly be monitored intraday by the Trading Surveillance Office of Eurex Deutschland.
2. Required action
In case the position limits have been exceeded, Exchange Participants are obliged according to § 14 Paragraph 5 of the Eurex Exchange Rules to submit a list of long positions in the Eurex C7 Clearing GUI including clear names of the customers to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Immediate position adjustments should be made by using the Trade Adjustment function (Open/Close Adjustment) instead of the Position Close-Out, in order to avoid such transactions being subject to late closing fees.
If the position limits are exceeded, the respective Participants will be requested by Eurex Deutschland to specify a Eurex user ID which can be used by Eurex Deutschland to undo the exceeding of the position limits.
