U.S. participation in benchmark products increasing/ Optimal liquidity with one tick bid/ask spreads/ USD margin call service launched successfully
Extended U.S. afternoon trading on the international derivatives exchange Eurex has seen a successful start since its introduction on November 21, the exchange announced on Tuesday. An average of approximately 59,000 contracts per day was traded during the extended trading hours in the first week. Eurex extended the trading day for its benchmark financial products until 4:00 p.m. New York time/ 3:00 p.m. Chicago time (10:00 p.m. Frankfurt time).
According to Eurex, liquidity in the extended U.S. afternoon trading has been optimal with the tightest possible bid/ask spreads of one tick for almost the entire time. Approximately half of all 400 Eurex members have been active during the extended trading hours. Furthermore, of the total number of U.S.-based members of Eurex, approximately 60 percent were active.
By covering more of the U.S. trading day Eurex can better serve its global customer base. The extended trading day enables Eurex to offer its clients additional trading opportunities, such as spread trading of EUR/USD products as well as significant enhancements of members’ portfolio and risk management.
The new trading hours apply for Euro fixed-income products, including the globally traded benchmark products Euro-Bund, Euro-Bobl, Euro-Schatz and Euro-Buxl, as well as for all equity index futures, including futures on the DAX and Dow Jones Euro STOXX indices. Previously, fixed-income products had been traded until 12:00pm Chicago time (7:00 p.m. Frankfurt time) and index futures until 1:00pm Chicago time (8:00 p.m. Frankfurt time). Trading hours for equity options and equity index options remain unchanged.
Parallel to the extended U.S. afternoon trading, Eurex Clearing has enhanced its service portfolio by offering an intra-day margin call facility in U.S. dollars. This service was launched successfully on November 21. Furthermore, Eurex has also enabled the outsourcing of order maintenance, in order to increase trading flexibility for members.

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
