First 3-year U.S. Treasury Note derivatives begin trading today on Eurex US

02.02.2005


We have responded to the demands of our clients for innovative Treasury products

The world’s first derivative products based on 3-year U.S. Treasury Notes began trading today on Eurex US, the fully-electronic U.S.-based futures and options exchange. As previously announced, Eurex US expanded its product suite of benchmark USD-denominated fixed income derivatives to include 3-year U.S. Treasury futures and options on futures, meeting customer demand for derivatives on shorter term U.S. Treasury Notes and further increasing the attractiveness of its U.S. fixed income products.

To provide basis liquidity to the new 3-year U.S. Treasury Note derivatives, which will trade in 5 cent increments, nine firms have already agreed to act as market makers. These firms will provide additional liquidity and increase order book depth by continuously quoting prices and offering competitive spreads.



Satish Nandapurkar, CEO of Eurex US said: "Today we have responded to the demands of our clients for innovative treasury products and introduced the world’s first 3-year U.S. Treasury future, thereby creating new trading opportunities for all market participants. We will continue to move toward our goal of offering a complete line of products as we launch equity index contracts at the end of the week". Russell 1000® and Russell 2000® futures will begin trading on Eurex US on February 4.

In addition, Eurex US’ modifications to the 2-year US Treasury Note futures and options took effect today. The contract value has been raised from 200,000 USD to 1 million USD, bringing the contract in line with the trade sizes in the underlying cash bond market and making the product even more appealing. 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 of less 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.

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

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...
