    Try ZN (1oyr note) traded on ACE. See

    It is still trading till 23:00 CET and will resume trading 3:00 CET. The Bund will open 8:00 CET.

    It is no perfect match, but might do the job.

    Hi - If you are hedging againt a general move in FI, then just do some US 10-yr futures against your bunds. You can match the amounts using the relative durations of the CTDs if you want. However, you might want to see what the US does on the close first. Good luck.

    Here is a chart comparing the two (10min). Tomorrow morning (european) the ZN will most likely follow the Bund.

    You should start your hedge now.

    Good Luck
