Trading Hours Extension

Extended trading hours. Extended opportunities.

Trade Eurex global benchmark futures. 

To support increasing demand of Eurex clients for trading on a global marketplace, we will offer extended trading hours for select liquid futures on Eurex Exchange starting from December 2018.

With Eurex extended trading hours, market participants will be able to extend their business opportunities into Asian time zones. 

Several trading members have already shown a strong commitment to provide liquidity during the extended trading hours, including Aardvark, Barak Capital, Flow Traders, HNK Alpha, Jump Trading International, Korea Investment and Securities, Prelude Capital, RSJ Securities, StarBeta, and XR Trading.

Major trading and clearing functionalities and processes are available

Starting in December 2018 the extended trading hours will become available to all Eurex Clearing and Non-Clearing members without any additional application requirements.

The trading system T7 will be available daily from Monday to Friday at 1.00 a.m. CET (2.00 a.m. CEST). As is the case today, the markets will close at 22.00 CET, and the Eurex Clearing C7 will be available through 22.30 CET.

Core trading, clearing and risk functionalities, including T7 Trade Entry Service (TES), will be also available during the extended trading hours.
