Eurex trading interface

Eurex trading interface* connects the QUIK broker system to futures and options trading at Eurex (European Exchange).

* MiFID II compliant

Module Functions

  • Access to reference data of the Eurex RDI (Reference Data interface),
  • Transmission of Level I and Level II quotes, ‘Time and Sales’ data of the Eurex EMDI (Enhanced Market Data interface),
  • Forwarding/cancellation of orders and transmission of information on trades.

Connection to the Eurex trading system is established both for market data and transactions:

  • Data connection is made via the UDP multicast network protocol and allows transmitting data from Eurex RDI and Eurex EMDI to QUIK in FIX/FAST messages.
  • Transaction connection is used to send/cancel orders and transmit transaction data. The connection is established through TCP and FIX network protocols.

Supported Order Types

  1. MARKET — immediately, at the best price,
  2. LIMIT — when the price is available,
  3. Closing auction only — orders can be submitted throughout the day but they are activated only at the closing auction,
  4. Good-till-date (GTD) — orders with a specified expiration date,
  5. Good-till-canceled (GTC) — orders valid until they are cancelled,
  1. Immediate or Cancel (IOC) — orders with a condition ‘cancel the rest’,
  2. Book or Cancel — a ‘passive’ order which goes to the Level2Quotes table only if it is not executed immediately (fully or partly),
  3. Persistent — an order that ‘survives’ exchange failures; it is saved on a hard disk of the trading system and restored after a failure,
  4. Non-Persistent — an order that ‘does not survive’ exchange failures; in case of an exchange failure the order is cancelled.
The interface is installed on the broker’s PC connected to the QUIK server through the TCP/IP protocol. The interface software may be installed on the same PC as the QUIK server software.
To perform pre-trade control of transactions and keep client positions when trading on Eurex, the QUIK server configuration requires the ‘Unified cash position module for spot and derivatives markets’.
