Asia Etrading Christmas Carol

Merry Christmas from Asia Etrading

Merry Christmas from Asia Etrading

Twas the night before Christmas, a new clearing house
Everyone was investing in the OTC mouse
The sell side was hung by the regulators with care
in hopes that transparency soon would be there.

The LME was nestled all snug at HKEx
With Charles Li’s vision and China’s big bet
That commodities trading would shift to the East
Sprecher bought SMX with the agile ICE beast

When out of India there arose such a clatter
Jignesh Shah and MCX was a serious matter
Barry Cheung was another who in a swift Flash
Brought the HKMerc down in one great fell crash

Competition was growing particularly in Aus
PTSs in Japan were struggling along
Price improvement was found on the rival Chi-X
And Korea’s new SME exchange called K O N E X

Cash trading in Japan was ready to flow
Abenomics it seemed was having a go
In Thailand market volumes did explode on the SET
Growing to three times that of illiquid SGX

Now Fidessa, now Sungard, BAML and Equinix
On Eurex, on BNP and NasdaqOMX
Special thanks to our sponsors without this note could not be sent
We know that your ad dollars are very well spent

Let us not forget the people that have always received
Our Monday morning emails who have never been peeved
Looking forward to 2014 at our website
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night
