La Deutsche Börse a publié un communiqué de presse dans lequel elle annonce l'élargissement de son offre de produits sur les obligations du gouvernement français.
Le nouveau produit, un contrat à taux d'intérêt à moyen terme, sera lancé le 11 mars prochain.
En collaboration avec le contrat à terme Euro-OAT lancé en avril dernier, le nouveau contrat vient compléter le segment existant et offrira aux investisseurs un instrument de couverture efficace et rentable qui leur permettra entre autres une moindre exposition aux risques des marchés.
On 11 March 2013, the international derivatives market Eurex Exchange will introduce a new interest rate future, the Mid-Term Euro-OAT Future, which is based on notional medium-term bonds issued by the Republic of France (“Obligations Assimilables du Trésor” – OAT). Together with the long-term Euro-OAT Futures which were introduced in April 2012, the contract complements the existing segment and offers market participants an efficient and cost-effective hedging instrument which enables the hedging of risks and basis trading in the mid-term maturities range of the French yield curve.
“The success, positive volume and open interest performance of the Euro-OAT Future introduced in April 2012 increased the demand among our customers for improved coverage of the French yield curve. The new contract means that we also cover medium-term maturities, creating new, additional hedging and spread trading opportunities,” said Peter Reitz, member of the Eurex Executive Board.
Trading volumes and open interest in the OAT Futures have increased steadily since the start of trading in April 2012. Since then around 5 million contracts were traded in total, with more than 150,000 contracts traded on the record day December 3, 2012. The open interest currently stands at more than 200,000 contracts.
