Eurex IOC Liquidity Indicator for Options
If an exchange’s order book were a cash register in a shop, it would show transactions at the counter, but not customers who came into the store wanting to buy something but then left without doing so. At least this is the case when it comes to ‘immediate or cancel’ orders (IOCs). Those lost opportunities for transactions – not filled immediate or cancel orders – are not recorded in the order book, yet represent real potential liquidity. Deutsche Börse Market Data + Services has launched a new product within its real-time analytics product family that allows traders to gauge those potential transactions in the options market and trade accordingly, resulting in fewer ‘empty shopping baskets’. Deutsche Börse’s new analytics product, the ‘Eurex IOC Liquidity Indicator for Options’ supports options traders at all levels, providing real-time analytics for the options market that go beyond the normally visible spectrum of information in the order book.
