Dtb/eurex Contracts First Day And Opening Time

  1. Hi,

    Was wondering if I can enlist some help from EUREX/DTB old timers?

    Helping my friend do some research on first day contract listings for the big 5:

    BUND was introduced on 23 November 1990
    FDAX was introduced on 23 November 1990
    BOBL was introduced on 04 October 1991
    SHAZ was introduced on 07 March 1997
    FESX was introduced on 22 June 1998

    However, I also would like to find out the opening times of these contracts on their respective day (e.g. FDAX opened at 9:00 AM CST on its debut). I don't think they are the same timings as they are currently.

    Would appreciate help from anyone that traded these contracts back in the day.



    PS - Could you note times with either the GMT or CST designation to avoid confusion.
  2. I remember my first trade in German Bund Options. + 120 % profit. Good, old times...:)
