Eurex/TAIFEX Link

Eurex/TAIFEX Link

On 15 May 2014, Eurex Exchange and the Taiwan Futures Exchange (TAIFEX) created a common link making TAIEX options and futures available for the first time after Taiwanese trading hours. Thus offering an overnight market that enables international investors and traders to access the TAIEX index derivatives market during European and U.S. core trading hours. The Eurex/TAIFEX Link provides existing market participants with hedging opportunities for TAIFEX positions and an opportunity to take advanced positions as the global market fluctuates.

The link for 24 hour trading and clearing of TAIEX Futures and Options will be realized by listing a derivatives contract on Eurex Exchange (daily futures) for which the underlying is a position in the corresponding contract/series of the TAIEX Futures/Options traded on TAIFEX. At the end of each trading day at Eurex Exchange, the open interest will be transferred to the TAIFEX clearing house.

The Taiwan Futures Exchange (TAIFEX) was established in 1998 and currently offers 19 products, including stock index futures and options, interest rate futures, single stock futures, equity options and gold futures and options. TAIFEX’s flagship products TAIEX Futures and TAIEX Options are two of the most successful equity index derivatives contracts in Asia.
