This study examines the characteristics and behavior of the demand for hedging, proxied by open interest, for the cross-listed Euribor futures contract traded at Euronext-LIFFE and Eurex. The study is unique in its investigation of the simultaneous determinants of open interest in a cross-listed setting. It also assesses the impact of shocks on traders' demand for hedging and shows how the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the credit crunch influence the level of dependency between Euronext-LIFFE and Eurex. Differences of opinion, ECB Governing Council meetings, days of the week, contract maturity, illiquidity, and volatility are investigated as potential determinants of open interest. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
