Eurex T7 Entry Services

Vola Trades

The Eurex Vola Trade Service allows authorized members to execute futures and options transactions from volatility trades negotiated off-book upon the exchange Eurex Deutschland and to clear them through Eurex Clearing. These transactions are administered like normal exchange transactions and may too be closed through the order book of the Exchange.

In general, a Vola Trade is a trade where two parties

  • Conclude an on-exchange or off-book option transaction and
  • Simultaneously (or in a second step), these parties agree on the off-book purchase/sale of the futures contract underlying the option transaction.

A list of all products admitted for the Vola Trade Service incl. Minimum Block Trade sizes can be found in the Contract Specifications for Futures Contracts and Options Contracts at Eurex Deutschland, chapter 3.2.5.
