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: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

Im Focus: Scientists decipher key principle behind reaction of metalloenzymes

So-called pre-distorted states accelerate photochemical reactions too

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
