Trading will start on Euronext’s electronic trading platform, Next Derivatives System. It will then migrate to the London International Financial Futures and Options Exchange's (Liffe) trade system, LiffeConnect, in April, as part of efforts to create a post-merger single derivatives platform. Euronext merged with Liffe last January.
Eurex became the first exchange to offer futures and options on ETFs when it opened its market on November 18. Its contracts cover futures and options on three Euro Stoxx indexes, an index based on the Dax German equity index and one based on the Swiss Market Index.
