A Game Of Two Halves For FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index - Index Saw 15.1 Percent Increase In Q1 2012 With 11.4 Percent Decrease In Q2 - June Closed Up Six Percent

Date 16/07/2012

The second quarter of the year was brutal for all constituents in the FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index, with all, except the TMX Group, being in negative territory.

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index fell 11.4 percent in Q2 2012, against a 15.1 percent increase in Q1.

Germany’s Deutsche Boerse experienced one of the biggest losses over the first six months of 2012, experiencing a share price increase of 20.1 percent in Q1 and decrease by almost 20 percent in Q2. 

The biggest winner in Q1 was the London Stock Exchange with a 33.7 percent increase in share price for the first three months of the year. The biggest winner in Q2 was Canada’s TMX Group with a 1.5 percent increase in share price. 

The Index*, which aims to reflect market sentiment and is a key indicator of the exchanges’ performance, saw a six per cent increase in June 2012. This followed a major decrease in May which saw the Index drop by 11.4 percent – one of the biggest monthly decreases in the past year.

Commenting on the Index which closed up at 20,377.88 on 29 June 2012, Herbie Skeete, Managing Director, Mondo Visione and Co-founder of the Index said:

"In a period when successful mergers between exchanges have been as rare as the successful mating of giant pandas, we wait with interest for the outcome of the LME shareholders' meeting on 25 July. Shareholders of the 135-year old commodities exchange vote on the recommended GBP1.4bn cash offer by Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing.  Who knows; animal spirits may yet come back to the exchanges sector, after an absence of several years."

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index best performer by capital returns in US dollars was Greece’s Hellenic Exchanges SA with a 31.4 per cent increase in share price from 31 May to 29 June 2012. The next best performer was Spain’s Bolsas y Mercados Espanoles with a 16.5 per cent increase over the same period.

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index worst performer by capital returns in US dollars was Dubai Financial Market with no movement in share price from 31 May to 29 June 2012. This was followed by Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing with a 0.4 per cent increase over the same period.
