Market models

The core market model at Eurex is the central limit order book (CLOB), where buy and sell orders are matched on a time allocation basis. In the CLOB model, customers can trade directly with dealers, dealers can trade with other dealers, and importantly, customers can trade directly with other customers, anonymously. Our on-book liquidity providers are available 23 hours, five days a week.
Additionally, Eurex offers block and exchange-for-physical (EFP) functionalities, where transactions are agreed bilaterally and submitted to the exchange. Also, our off-book liquidity providers are available 23 hours, five days a week.

  • A Block trade allows market participants to negotiate the price for a large number of FX futures contracts. This trade type is ideal for risk transference in size and to leverage bilateral trading relationships.
  • An EFP trade allows for a simultaneous purchase/sale of FX futures along with a sale/purchase of the underlying OTC FX instrument. This trade type is ideal for moving an OTC position into a cleared position, or vice-versa.

FX Futures

  • FX Futures are comparable to OTC FX forwards but have significantly lower counterparty credit risk (CCR) as financial obligations are guaranteed by a central counterparty (CCP).
  • FX Rolling Spot Futures are perpetual contracts that mimic the trading of an OTC FX spot, combined with a daily usage of tom-next (T/N) points at MID, to roll over the position.

Options on FX Futures

  • Options on FX Futures are standardized monthly options that allow users to manage risk or gain exposure to FX volatility with the counterparty risk protection of a CCP.

Regulatory obligations

According to the phases 5 and 6 of the uncleared margin rules (UMR) set by the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO), covered entities belonging to a group whose Aggregate month-end Average Notional Amount (AANA) of non-centrally cleared derivatives for March, April, and May of the year exceeds EUR 50 and 8 billion respectively, are required to post initial margin bilaterally with their counterparts.

It is important to note that:

  • All exchange-traded derivatives (ETD) are exempt from the AANA calculation;
  • Spot FX will be out of scope as they are not an OTC derivative contract according to the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA);
  • Physically-settled forwards and swaps, although exempt from the IM requirement, are included in the AANA calculation.
