Global Commodities

    „Through our Global Commodities portfolio and globally deployed exchanges we are able to meet the needs of our clients to access the benefits of one clearing house, ECC, from various different regulatory jurisdictions and across a portfolio of products.“

    Richard Heath, EEX Business Development

    Supporting our customers on a global level

    Commodity markets are global in character and interconnected both intra-regionally and within supply chains. The nature of the global commodities trade means that organisations with exposure to these markets are generally active in a large number of products rather than focusing on a single asset class. Today, these organisations no longer want exchanges to specialise in a single product set but rather they favour a much broader range of trading possibilities in a single marketplace.

    EEX Group launched our Global Commodities business in 2014 to support and enable our customers to trade and clear a broader portfolio of products from a global perspective via both EEX and our Singaporean arm, EEX Asia.

    EEX / NFX Open Interest Migration

    EEX and ECC in coordination with NFX and OCC will facilitate matching sessions where the open interest of each participant will be matched-up, and subsequent offsetting blocks will be entered into NFX to close-out the positions and new blocks will be entered at EEX to re-establish the positions.



    Seaborne trade in bulk commodities remains the backbone of globalisation with more than 11 billion tonnes of cargo carried annually.


    Iron Ore

    The trade registration service which EEX offers in cooperation with EEX Asia allows the steel industry to manage price risks in a dynamic market.


    Wood Pellets

    The recently launched Wood Pellets Futures complement EEX Group’s existing product portfolio of energy-related, globally traded commodities – allowing market participants an effective price hedging tool with financially settled futures.


    Fuel Oil

    Fuel oil price changes have a significant impact on the economics of shipping and international commodity deals, making efficient management of price risk a necessity for all participants in these markets.
