Does anyone know how Eurex comes up with a full point? Do they have a chimp and a dart-board somewhere, who draws up their contract specs? Because i fail to see any kind of reasoning behind this. One tick in Fesx is a whopping ~4 BPs while the half-tick in FDax is like 0.7 BPs. I would have thunk it more reasonable to make FDax full-tick and Fesx half-tick (atleast) - and have comparable transaction costs. But, alas, i most likely lack the ingenuity of the eurex product development team.
