A Weakening Exchanges Sector Continues To Be Bolstered By Strong Start - FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index Weakens In Q2, 2013 - Japan Stock Exchange Outperforms Index, Year-To-Date

Date 22/07/2013

The exchanges sector experienced a softening in value during the second quarter, with the share prices of many publicly listed exchanges decreasing when compared to the strong performance of quarter one, 2013.

However, several stars have continued to shine during the year with Dubai Financial Market providing the strongest performance, quarter against quarter, experiencing an increase in share price of 62.1 per cent in Q2 against 3.6 per cent in Q1.

Leading the league table, year-to-date, is newcomer Japan Stock Exchange, with an increase in share price of 102.8 per cent for the six months to 28 June 2013.

Of note, is the continued steady performance of US exchanges CBOE Holdings and CME Group. Both exchanges have provided steady results during the year with CBOE Holdings experiencing a 26.3 per cent increase in share value in Q2 against an increase of 25.4 per cent in Q1, 2013. CME Group has achieved a 23.7 per cent increase in share value during Q2 against an increase of 21.2 per cent in Q1, 2013.

Overall, the FTSE Mondo Visione Exchange Index has experienced a 15 per cent increase year-to-date which predominantly reflects the strong result in January.

The Index weakened in quarter two 2013 with a small 1.8 per cent increase compared to a buoyant 12.9 per cent increase in quarter one 2013.

The Index*, which aims to reflect market sentiment and is a key indicator of the exchanges’ performance, saw a 0.9 per cent decrease in June 2013.

Commenting on the Index which closed down at 26,129.00 on 28 June 2013, Herbie Skeete, Managing Director, Mondo Visione and Co-founder of the Index said:

“The near 50 per cent share price improvement of the CME in the year-to-date to end-June follows a 28 per cent increase in trading volume this year over 2012. This increase in CME volume has been driven by a shift in Federal Reserve policy, trading volume gains in its energy contracts and demand for its swap-clearing services, following the Dodd-Frank reforms that require the clearing of swaps.”

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index best performer by capital returns in US dollars was CBOE Holdings with a 16.2 per cent increase in share price from 31 May to 28 June 2013. The next best performers were CME Group and Deutsche Boerse, each with share price increases of 11.8 per cent, over the same period.

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index worst performer by capital returns in US dollars was Philippine Stock Exchange with a 19.1 per cent decrease in share price from 31 May to 28 June 2013. This was followed by Brazil’s BM&F Bovespa a 15 per cent decrease over the same period.
