Eurex US extends trading day to 23 hours

01.02.2005


Trading hour extension effective April 3, 2005/ Nandapurkar: Eurex US offers trading during core business hours in all time zones

Eurex US, the fully electronic U.S. futures and options exchange, announced on Monday that it will be extending its trading day by two hours, from 21 hours to 23 hours, effective April 3, 2005. As of that date trading will begin at 5:00 p.m. Chicago time instead of 7:00 p.m.; the trading day will continue to end at 4:00 p.m. Chicago time on the next calendar day. The extended trading hours will apply to all products at Eurex US. Eurex US currently lists futures and options on 2-, 3-, 5- and 10-year U.S. Treasury notes, 30-year U.S. Treasury bonds and will introduce its first U.S. equity index futures on the Russell 1000® and Russell 2000® indexes on February 4, 2005.

By opening a full two hours earlier, Eurex US creates more trading opportunities for market participants and improves their ability to manage their risk. Furthermore, this modification makes Eurex US the only exchange to offer trading in futures on U.S. Treasury products during the full Asia-Pacific morning.



"Global financial firms are structured for around the clock trading and with this change, Eurex US will meet their needs by offering trading during the core business hours of all time zones," said Satish Nandapurkar, CEO of Eurex US. "This extension reinforces Eurex US’ position as a truly global marketplace for trading derivatives."

With the introduction of the Global Clearing Link, Eurex US will expand its product offering to include futures and options on Euro-denominated interest rate and index products. These products will include benchmark European products such as the fixed income product suite Bund, Bobl and Schatz as well as products on the leading European indices DAX and DJ Euro STOXX 50.

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
