Wholesale Trading Offer

Euronext offers off-order book on-exchange trading across its financial derivatives markets in Amsterdam, Brussels, Lisbon and Paris.

Customers can execute and report their wholesale business through five facilities:

  • Request for Cross (RFC) Facility
  • Large-in-Scale (LiS) Facility
  • Large-in-Scale (LiS) Prof Facility
  • Guaranteed Cross (GXT) Facility
  • Basis Trading (BAS) Facility

Request for Cross (RFC) Facility
The RFC facility can be used for cross trades with a size below as well as above the Large-in-Scale (LiS) minimum volume threshold. After the RFC is submitted by the RFC Initiator there is a 1 second auction period that is open to all market participants. During this RFC response period other participants (RFC Reactors) may choose to price-join or improve the cross level. After the RFC response period ends the RFC is executed. Depending on the prices of the RFC Reactor responses, one or more RFC Reactors may trade against the RFC Initiator.

Available:

  • for all equity and index options listed on the four Euronext Financial Derivatives markets;
  • during contract trading hours.

Download the RFC factsheet for more information, or For full details of the RFC facility, please see section 3.4 of the Euronext Trading Procedures.
