Asia Etrader Magazine 13 Subscribers

Back to School

Summer is always too short but we hope you managed to spend some quality time with your family and are ready to pick up where we left off. We start with darkpools which has seen regional regulators scrutinize their value particularly with Barclay’s casting a shadow on these venues. Continued developments coming out of China these days, namely, the Shanghai – HK connect and China stock and index options expected to go live in October. We look to the Philippines where we see a growing interest and investment at the exchange. And speaking of exchanges we saw a few outages during first half of the year and write about inevitable outages that can occur from time-to-time. Thailand continues to develop its derivatives market allowing for local funds broader investment into these products. I am sure we will get you back up to speed with this our lucky 13 issue.
