Equity options to be standardised but local market models are unlikely to be unified
Euronext Liffe is to launch a raft of German equity
derivative contracts and also plans to standardise its equity
options offering across all of its markets.
The exchange will list 27 options on German equities next
month which, along with three already listed will constitute
options on all components of the Dax 30 index. Futures on 16 of
the stocks will also be launched.
The options are being launched on the Amsterdam market's
Switch system, which currently offers richer options trading
functionality than Liffe Connect. The sizeable retail options
market in Amsterdam will offer the best chance for success in
the German products, Simon Raybould, Liffe's sales and
marketing md, said.
