HKEx Ends Trading In Chinese Stock Futures

Hong Kong Futures Exchange Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEx), is discontinuing trading in its Hang Seng China H-Financials Index (HFI) futures and FTSE/Xinhua China 25 (FXC) Index futures and options due to low market demand.

An HKEx statement, issued last week, explained:

"No new contract months will be introduced for trading; the trading of existing futures contract months without open interest will be discontinued with immediate effect; and existing futures contract months with open interest will be available for trading until expiration or all the respective open positions are closed out, whichever is earlier."

"HKEx reviews its products from time to time to ensure they are meeting the needs of the market. The decision to discontinue trading in HFI futures and FXC futures and options is based on the results of one of those reviews."
