PXE products successfully migrated onto EEX platform
The offering comprises cash-settled power futures for the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania and Poland. The contracts are available with monthly, quarterly and yearly expiries. Until 16 June, a volume of 117,965 MWh was traded in the new products, now listed under EEX’s rule book in the T7 system.
David Kučera says: “We thank our members for supporting us in the migration process. This transition means that now more than 200 EEX participants will be allowed to trade PXE products without any additional administrative or technical measures. We expect this step to further strengthen the Central and Eastern European markets and increase liquidity”.
“The migration of PXE products onto EEX brings European power trading even closer together”, adds Peter Reitz, Chief Executive Officer of EEX. “We are happy that all PXE members are ready to continue trading on the EEX platform. Through EEX, they gain access to a bigger network of participants and the full EEX power product suite. The migration also opens up Central and Eastern European markets to traders who were not active in this region in the past.”
