Only a couple of years ago the world of trading was easy. The banks and hedge funds traded OTC against each other and everything smaller such as market makers traded the regular way.

A few years and a few banks later, things have changed a little. Apart from offering regular block trading, Eurex is also offering off-exchange trade matching under certain conditions. While it’s probably quite straightforward stuff, it isn’t exactly my field of expertise. That’s why Eurex decided to organize an event to answer any questions on the matter.

Thursday, September 22 there will be an event hosted by Eurex in Amstelveen after market close. The good thing is you can work on your golf swing at the same time, as it will be held in the Swingaway Golfcentrum. It looks like it’s brand new and will open its doors for the public one day later. The bad thing is it’s Amstelveen – an upper class suburb of Amsterdam.  A shuttle bus could be arranged for you, but I suppose you call a cab.

Anyway, event starts at 18:00 and apart from playing golf and a small Q & A session on the Eurex OTC trade entry systems it’s an excellent event for having a few drinks with all the familiar faces from the industry. You can register here, if you work for a trading, brokerage or clearing firm that is.
