JPX is proud to announce that 9 October, the combined year-to-date trading volume of derivatives products on Osaka Securities Exchange Co., Ltd. (OSE) and Tokyo Stock Exchange, Inc. (TSE) reached 300,565,808 contracts (preliminary figure).

The surge in derivatives trading reflects increasing demand among investors for risk-hedging instruments in response to the rising stock prices accompanying the government and Bank of Japan measures since the start of the year and subsequent international economic and political developments.

Additionally, invest or needs for night-time trading have been growing steadily every year. Due to these factors, trading volume in 2013 has surged at such a high pace that it already surpassed last year’s record of 234,305,669 contracts.

Moving forward, JPX will continue to develop our derivatives market in our aim to become Asia’s leading exchange group.
