Market update – Eurex Listed FX continues to expand

Eurex FX continues building its positioning as Europe's FX liquidity hub of choice. The Q1 volumes and open interest further cement the transition trend from the traditional FX market towards the listed environment. Listed FX allows participants to access firm liquidity pools benefiting from the integrity and safety of an on-exchange centrally cleared marketplace.

FX Futures are well on track for another record quarter. Overall, more than 300,000 contracts were traded by March 10th, representing a YTD growth rate of 104%. With the open interest soaring to €8.1 bn, the average daily volume continues to grow to 6,180 contracts YTD.

FX clearing benefits and UMR

In the FX space, besides FX Options, NDFs are the key product as they contribute to the overall AANA calculation. By centrally clearing these in-scope trades, firms remove transactions from their AANA calculation, potentially removing them from the scope of UMR altogether.

This article, published in 360T's FX Spotlight Issue 2/2021, gives an overview of the challenges and benefits associated with central clearing.
