Taiwan Futures Exchange Newsletter Highlights

TAIFEX’s Cumulative Trading Volume surpassed 100 million contracts on July 18.

The cumulative year-to-date trading volume of the Taiwan Futures Exchange (TAIFEX) exceeded 100 million contracts on July 18, two months earlier than in the previous three years. The result highlights the rapid growth and momentum of Taiwan’s futures market. The success of the futures market has its source in both the business promotions of the FCMs and in new measures recently implemented by TAIFEX. These measures have not only addressed market needs, but have also had a positive impact on the growth of trading volume. The high level of volatility in the market in recent months has also contributed to the growth of trading volume.
