Eurex supports EU Commission’s outline to strengthen the safety of derivatives markets

06.07.2009
On 3 July, the European Commission has adopted a Communication on ensuring efficient, safe and sound derivatives markets.

The Communication outlines fours ways to strengthen the safety of derivatives markets: standardisation, central data repositories, central counterparty clearing and trade execution on public trading venues.

Eurex supports the EU Commission’s Communication that derivatives play an important role in the economy and market organization needs to be safe and of highest integrity. The financial crisis has highlighted that systemic risk is not sufficiently mitigated in the OTC part of the market. We regard the ways outlined in the Commission’s Communication both as appropriate and as effective to strengthen the safety and integrity of derivatives markets.

Eurex actively contributes to market safety and integrity with state-of-the-art market infrastructure both in trading and clearing services as well as Eurex Clearing’s leading risk management processes for the derivatives industry.

Especially central counterparty clearing is a stabilizing element for financial markets, together with effective risk management services it reduces systemic risk, improves transparency and operational efficiency.

Eurex and Eurex Clearing are looking forward to continue our discussions with all relevant stakeholders. We will actively participate in the Communication’s consultation process to contribute our perspective and expertise as the world's largest derivatives exchange and the leading clearing house in Europe.

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
