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: Carbon Nanotubes Turn Electrical Current into Light-emitting Quasi-particles

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers

Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects

A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
