Major Eurex Slowdowns

  1. Anyone else experiencing these more than 10 second delays in confirmation? It's ridiculous! The first minute after the ZEW release was the best example. Does anyone know whether this is a Eurex problem or not?

    Yeah took ages for me to get fills in bunds. Was well through my price and still showing working order.

    It was explained before. When major number like ZEW comes out, almost all traders on Eurex try to send orders, thus delays, and with today's number especially. I learned a hard way, that trading news is pure gambling. I always wait for dust to settle down a bit before placing trades.

    Which broker are you using?
    No delays here today.
  5. KS96, which is your broker?!:confused:
  6. We are a member and have a direct connection to the exchange. Experienced 5 - 10 second delays after ZEW that day. I too would like to know what kind of broker/connection you are using.
