(TSE) has decided to make partial revisions to its trading rules related to Futures Contracts (JGB futures and Index futures), such as the introduction of a market maker scheme. The revisions are to be made in connection with the migration of Futures Contracts to Tdex+ System, which is already being used for Options Contracts, from the viewpoint of further enhancing investor convenience and expanding the liquidity of the futures market.
