New EUREX Contracts Added: Bund and Eurostoxx

In response to a member’s request, I have added two new EUREX futures to our contract database: Eurostoxx and Bund.

The symbol roots are: EX and BD respectively.

Example: the June 2005 Eurostoxx is EXM5.

These contracts are traded and margined in Euros, but for accounting purposes, all profit/loss and margin calculations are converted back into dollars in near real-time.

New contracts always tend to have “issues.” Let me know if you notice anything strange with these.
