The additional contract versions service support off-book trading of tailor-made futures and options contracts. This allows traders to customize their trades to meet their individual needs.

In this way, Eurex Trading Participants benefit from the flexibility of off-book trading and at the same time take advantage of the efficiency and safety of standardized exchange, clearing and settlement processes.

Eurex products across various asset classes are offered via the additional contract versions services. The Minimum Trading Size for additional contract versions is identical to the Minimum Block Trade Size of the respective product.
