The Eurex Block Trade Service supports the off-book trading of standard Eurex products. Buyers and sellers can execute order information into the Eurex® system without execution risk.
The Eurex Block Trade Service is available for specific Eurex products and a minimum number of traded contracts.
Option strategies or option volatility strategies on the basis of Eurex options listed in the table are also admitted to the Block Trade Service. The Minimum Block Trade Size of option strategies or option volatility strategies is equivalent to the Minimum Block Trade Size of the respective underlying option contracts of the strategy.
The Bulk Load Panel within the Block Trade Service further enhances the efficiency in entering order information. This function enables the import of order information for multiple Block Trades directly from a file in CSV format into the Eurex® system.
Please find the Bulk Load import template in the "Further Information" section below.
