Eurex US first exchange to list 3-year U.S. Treasury Note derivatives

10.01.2005


Modification of Futures and Options on 2-year U.S. Treasury Note

Eurex US, the fully-electronic U.S. futures and options exchange, today announced that it will expand its product suite of benchmark USD-denominated fixed income derivatives. On February 1, Eurex US will introduce futures on 3-year U.S. Treasury Notes and options on the futures. This makes Eurex US the only exchange worldwide to offer these products. With the introduction of the new product, Eurex US meets customer demand and further increases the attractiveness of its U.S. fixed income products, offering new trading opportunities in the short-term segment.

"We continue to be the innovator in the U.S marketplace," said Satish Nandapurkar, CEO of Eurex US. "The introduction of the 3-year U.S. Treasury futures marks a new point on the Treasury yield curve. This product was established in response to strong client demand in the light of the regular issue policy of the U.S. Treasury Department with respect to short-term U.S. Treasury Notes. This will create new trading opportunities for the market."

In addition, Eurex US will modify its 2-year US Treasury Note futures and options as of February 1. The contract value will be raised from 200,000 USD to 1 million USD. This modification brings the contract in line with the trade sizes in the underlying cash bond market increasing the attractiveness of the product. The types of deliverable short-term U.S. Treasury notes will be changed to allow for longer original maturity and wider delivery windows. A short-term note must have an original maturity not greater than 3 years and 3 months to be deliverable against the modified 2-year contract. The delivery window will be widened to 1 year and 6 months through 2 years and 3 months.

Eurex US opened its market for trading on February 8, 2004 and currently lists futures and options on 2-, 5- and 10-year U.S. Treasury notes and on 30-year U.S. Treasury bonds. Pending approval of international regulatory authorities, Eurex US will expand its offering to include trading in futures and options on Euro-denominated interest rate and index products. These products will include the Bund future, one of the world’s most heavily traded futures contract, Bobl and Schatz futures, as well as products on the leading European indices DAX and DJ EURO STOXX 50.

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
