Advantages of Trading Power at EEX

  • EEX offers access to the most liquid financial power future in Europe – the Phelix Future.
  • The derivatives market facilitates medium- to long-term portfolio optimisation.
  • Market participants can hedge against risks of price changes up to six years in advance.
  • Standard maturities include Month, Quarter and Year Futures. In addition, weekly maturities are offered for French, Italian and Spanish Futures. Phelix Futures can also be traded as Day, Weekend and Week Futures.
  • Exchange trading and Trade Registration is available from 8 am to 6 pm CET.

New: EEX will offer additional power products on the derivatives market which will be listed on a new trading platform (‘non-MTF’ platform). These products will be launched in the second quarter of 2016 alongside the existing power futures and will be cleared by ECC, thereby ensuring that trading is secure and anonymous. Additionally, the new products can be physically settled and are therefore not financial instruments according to MiFID. Once MiFID II comes into effect, these products shall be listed on an OTF platform.
