With Passive Liquidity Protection (PLP), Eurex aims to further improve the liquidity picture and price discovery process of the order book where price discovery is significantly driven by underlying or exogenous markets. In such specific products, trading participants providing passive liquidity to the order book need to spend a high amount of resources to prevent adverse hits in case of short-term underlying movements. As a result, they may even refrain from quoting in the order book and only provide liquidity off-book. By differentiating latency in selected option markets, we ensure that trading participants can strengthen their focus on serving the needs of the end-clients and grow the market as a whole.
On this site, Eurex will provide information updates in order to support adequate planning and to ensure a successful introduction for PLP. For further information about the PLP market model, please refer to this website: www.eurexchange.com > Trading > Market-models > Eurex PLP.
Software implementation: 3 December 2018
Production start: 27 May 2019 for all FX products listed at T7-FX
