TradeStation (TRAD) Now Offers Futures Trading on Eurex

PLANTATION, Fla., Aug. 24, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — TradeStation Securities, the award-winning broker-dealer for active traders, and a leading provider of custom analysis and trading solutions, today announced the launch of real-time trading in Eurex futures, competitively priced and seamlessly integrated into the TradeStation platform. Eurex is one of the world’s leading global derivatives exchanges, notably for futures, with a product suite comprising the world’s most actively traded and liquid market in EUR-denominated equity index derivatives.

The TradeStation platform can now be used to trade DAX and Euro Stoxx Index futures along with 19 other popular Eurex products. In addition, TradeStation‘s TradeManager Balances tab now displays non-U.S. dollar (USD) currency account ledgers. This means that futures traders now have the option of funding their accounts in one of the major local currencies (CAD, CHF, EUR, GBP and JPY), in addition to USD, and viewing their buying power, realized P&L and unrealized P&L in a USD-equivalent account.

“The ability to trade more futures markets around the world, and being able to fund accounts in foreign currencies, have been two of our most requested enhancements,” said Salomon Sredni, Chief Executive Officer of TradeStation Group, Inc., the parent company of TradeStation Securities. “For traders who trade CME, ICE and Eurex futures — and wish to fund their accounts in a major local currency of their choice — this represents a significant addition to TradeStation’s product offerings.”
