New Change FX embeds spot and forward currency fixing benchmarks to support the new EEX TTF Natural Gas Month ($/MMBtu) futures contract


New Change FX (NCFX), the leading London based independent financial benchmark firm, is excited to unveil its latest collaboration with the European Energy Exchange (EEX) aimed at enhancing currency benchmarking support for the Exchange’s new TTF Natural Gas Month ($/MMBtu) Futures.

NCFX provides EEX with a daily fixing service that delivers the live NCFX Spot EUR/USD Benchmark rate and the outright NCFX forward EUR/USD benchmark rates tailored for each monthly future settlement date extending out to six years.

This collaboration represents a significant step forward in providing comprehensive support to EEX, enabling them to accurately price the underlying EEX TTF Front Month ($/MMBtu) Index as well as end-of-day settlement prices for the new futures contract.  

EEX TTF Natural Gas Month ($/MMBtu) Futures are monthly expiry futures which are financially settled against the EEX TTF Front Month ($/MMBtu) Index. TTF in $/MMBtu has grown to become a pricing benchmark of choice for European LNG imports as well as being used outside of this region for LNG related trading strategies. https://www.eex.com/en/global-commodities/lng

Paul Lambert, CEO at New Change FX, emphasized the significance of this collaboration, stating, "This partnership with EEX underscores the universal applicability of high-quality FX benchmark data in addressing challenges across diverse asset classes. We are proud to pioneer solutions that transcend boundaries and enhance trading efficiency."


Steffen Koehler, COO of EEX, comments: “The LNG markets have grown in importance during recent years, which we also acknowledge by the introduction of our new products for this market. As a forward-looking exchange, it is important for us to provide the most accurate price guidance for our trading participants and thus we welcome innovative services, such as the new currency benchmarking solution by New Change FX. “
