no 28/17 Nasdaq Commodities to go live with German Only Futures Contracts


In the light of potential split of the German and Austrian grid, Nasdaq Commodities has in collaboration with its Members agreed to implement new German Futures Contracts settling against the German price only. The go-live date for the new products is Friday May 12, 2017, subject to testing and regulatory approval.

The contract suite includes monthly, quarterly and yearly Futures contracts.

The new contracts will be listed in parallel to the existing German Futures Contracts that settle against the combined German and Austrian price. For further clarification, no changes are made to the existing EDE contracts.

Nasdaq Commodities will also provide inter-product spreads (a.k.a. standard combination) contracts for members to trade between the new and the existing contracts.
