Cash Market Readiness Newsflash | Pre-Production updates regarding the Börse Frankfurt (including Börse Frankfurt Zertifikate) migration to T7Cash Market Readiness Newsflash

Dear Börse Frankfurt and Börse Frankfurt Zertifikate Participant,

Last week, on 18 November 2019, Deutsche Börse AG introduced T7 Release 8.0 for the trading venue Xetra. With the go-live of the release, the ground work was laid for the trading venue Börse Frankfurt (including Börse Frankfurt Zertifikate) to migrate to T7. 

However, Börse Frankfurt will not migrate to T7 Release 8.0 until 9 March 2020 – allowing for plenty of additional development and testing time. 

With this Newsflash we would like to provide Pre-Production updates on the following topics:

1.   Focus days
2.   Liquidity provision in Pre-Production
3.   Documentation updates

1.   Focus days

Since 28 October, Börse Frankfurt (MIC: XFRA) has been available in our Pre-Production environment. We would therefore like to draw your attention to the planned focus days and encourage your participation. 

All focus days are described in detail in the Pre-Production Execution Guide (Chapter 4).

The actual dates for the planned focus days are listed in the T7 Börse Frankfurt Pre-Production Calendar (PDF and CSV versions).

2.   Liquidity provision in Pre-Production

We would like to highlight that Deutsche Börse AG is providing liquidity for a selection of instruments as specified in the Pre-Production Execution Guide (Chapter 3.4.4) – see the T7 Börse Frankfurt Pre-Production Supported Instruments List.

Pre-Production support is provided by Cash Market Operations. You can contract this helpdesk via e-mail or phone under +49-69-211-1 10 50.

Please note: All documents referred to under numbers 1. and 2. are available for download on the Xetra website under the following link:

3.   Documentation updates

Deutsche Börse AG usually updates Release documentation when changes occur. With regards to the Börse Frankfurt migration, we would like to inform you that in case we will amend some specifications, i.e. updates regarding interfaces, we will publish all updates in a bundled approach by mid/end of January 2020. 

The entire system documentation for T7 Release 8.0 is available on the Xetra website under the following link:

We urge all Börse Frankfurt (including Börse Frankfurt Zertifikate) Members to become active as soon as possible in the Pre-Production environment to allow for a seamless transition to T7.
