Does the "Bund" dominate price discovery in Euro bond futures? Examining information shares

By Christoph Fricke and Lukas Menkhoff


This paper examines the relative information shares of the Bund, i.e. the 10-year Euro bond future contract on German sovereign debt, versus two futures with shorter maturity. We find that the Bund is most important but does not dominate price discovery. The other contracts also have relevant - and at many days even higher - information shares. In examining determinants of information shares, we add order flow measures to market state variables and macroeconomic news. More order flow in a contract consistently increases this contract's information share.Bond futures Information shares Price discovery Order flow Macroeconomic news
