Equity Derivatives
Eurex offers standardized equity options and futures on a variety of european, brasilian and US-american shares. The range of underlying instruments comprises blue chip stocks of leading national and international indices from various countries. Eurex equity options can for instance be traded on all components of the EURO STOXX 50® Index. Eurex equity futures mostly cover all of the STOXX® Europe 600 Index.

Furthermore, Low Exercise Price Options (LEPOs) and Weekly Options (options with a maturity of one week) can be traded.

LEOPs
LEPOs are options with a very low exercise price.

Example: The buyer of a call option has the right to purchase shares that are currently trading at EUR 100, at an exercise price of EUR 1. Therefore, the option price will move virtually in tandem with the share price, turning the LEPO into a substitute for the share.
