The trading day at Eurex typically runs from 07:30 to 22:00 CET. It consists of three phases:
All products are subject to these periods, although product-specific schedules apply for each period - for instance, due to different conventions in the underlying market.
The pre-trading period begins at 07:30 CET, and allows participants to prepare for the opening of trading. Quotes and orders can be entered, changed or deleted, and participants can make data inquiries, but no inside market (the best bid and ask prices, as well as their respective aggregated bid and offer sizes) information is available. Entering futures combination quotes, as well as quotes and orders for option strategies and option volatility strategies is not permitted during this time.
