GameStop Frenzy Halts FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index Surge - Index Up 0.8.% In January, After Blistering Start To Year

Date 08/02/2021

Shares in the world's largest exchange operating groups rose by 0.8% in January, with only 12 of the 32 constituents of the FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index being in positive territory. The Index closed at 73,114.7 points, up from the December close of 72,499.8. The index set a new closing all-time high of 76,043.31 on 25 January 2021, before the exchanges sector was hit by the contagion effect from the volatility triggered by retail investors driving up stocks such as GameStop and AMC Entertainment through online forums on websites such as Reddit.

 

HKEX ended January as the world's largest exchange operator by market capitalisation.

The top 5 exchanges by market capitalisation at end January were:

Exchange Market Cap (USD bn)
Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing 81.33
CME Group 64.39
Intercontinental Exchange 60.99
London Stock Exchange Group 37.53
Deutsche Boerse 29.55



The best performer by capital returns in US dollars was Dubai Financial Market with a 32.3 per cent increase in share price from 31 December 2020 to 31 January 2021. The next best performer was Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing with a 17 per cent increase, followed by Bursa Malaysia with a 12.3 per cent increase over the same period.

The worst performer by capital returns in US dollars was Greece's Hellenic Exchanges SA with a 10.9 per cent decrease in share price from 31 December 2020 to 31 January 2021. This was followed by Japan Exchange Group with an 8.6 per cent decline and Brazil's B3 SA with an 8.2 per cent decrease over the same period.

Herbie Skeete, Managing Director, Mondo Visione and Co-founder of the Index said:

"The USD27 billion acquisition by the London Stock Exchange Group of Refinitiv was the largest M&A deal involving a stock exchange. With assets such as Tradeweb and FXAll the acquisition enhances the LSEG's asset class and revenue diversity. Getting significant revenue growth out of the traditional Refinitiv data and analytics businesses might be a challenge. Data is indeed the lifeblood of markets but in today's increasingly digitised world, the competition is likely not Michael Bloomberg's eponymous empire but a couple of Tesla driving kids in a loft somewhere, reimagining the ecosystem and disrupting the established order"
