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: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
