Euro FX Currency Futures and Options
Euro FX futures and options on futures contracts traded at CME are designed to reflect changes in the U.S. dollar value of the euro. Futures contracts are quoted in the U.S. dollars per euro, and call for physical delivery at expiration. Exercised options contracts are settled by the delivery of futures contracts.
Euro Fx cross-rate futures and options on futures contracts reflect the value of the euro in relation to the British pound, the Japanese yen and the Swiss franc. Euro FX cross-rate futures contracts are quoted as the counter-currency (i.e, British pound) per euro and are physically delivered at expiration. Exercised options contracts are settled by the delivery of futures contracts.
Financial institutions, investment managers, corporations and private investors can use Euro FX and Euro FX cross-rate futures and options to manage the risks associated with currency rate fluctuation and to take advantage of profit opportunities stemming from changes in currency rates.
