Chart titled, "Eurex Contract Volume - Futures"

We saw significant increases in volumes across all our benchmark derivative products: EURO STOXX 50®, DAX®, Mini-DAX® and VSTOXX®. Looking ahead, there are once again some red flags in alternative asset classes: gold is at multi-year highs, bitcoin has enjoyed a strong bounce off the bottom and equity markets feel as fragile as ever due to overall market uncertainty! In this current environment we can expect demand for derivatives hedging on Eurex to remain elevated.
