Coming April 19: Micro-DAX® and Micro-EURO STOXX 50®
Eurex recently announced new micro contracts. The Micro-DAX and Micro-EURO STOXX 50 will start trading on April 19, 2021.
In a response to increasing global demand for smaller sized futures, Deutsche Börse’s derivatives arm’s new micro contracts will grant smaller and medium sized investors access to transparent, price efficient and liquid markets.
Randolf Roth, Member of the Eurex Executive Board: “The new contracts are the right size for the needs of investors with smaller investment accounts like private wealth managers or individual traders. But this is only part of it. We see also demand from institutional and professional investors who are seeking to scale their equity index exposure and to precisely hedge existing equity portfolio positions.”
Micro-EURO STOXX 50®
Expected to have strong liquidity, as the FTSX contract trades with the same liquidity and volume as the ES in general.
Expected to be a similarly thin product with very fast movement.
What This Means for Edge Clear Members
With Eurex launching smaller contract sizes, investors require lower initial capital to participate in trading and clearing these liquid futures markets.
As Eurex explains in a list of key benefits, this allows for:
- Easy access to liquid European equity index futures
- Cost-efficient and low risk products
- Exact hedging opportunities
- More flexible and targeted trading and hedging strategies
As an advocate for Micros, with involvement in the recent launch of Micros futures and discussions with Eurex in Q4 2020, Edge Clear is looking forward to offering members more options to trade contracts with low margin requirements, in additional time zones.

"We’re very excited about this product launch. I believe Eurex products are more friendly to independent traders than some other exchanges. This means more opportunities for our members to keep risk relatively lower while having more products to trade around the clock." - Morad Askar, Founder, Edge Clear LLC
