Exchanges Ride Wave Of Good Fortune - FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index Increased 13.5 Per Cent In October

Date 14/11/2011

Against a backdrop of economic turmoil, the exchanges sector has bucked the trend causing a positive spike in the FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index during October.

Commenting on the Index which closed at 21,778.52 on 31 October 2011, Herbie Skeete, Managing Director, Mondo Visione and Co-founder of the Index said:

“The Index has been in positive territory only four times in the past year so this movement is interesting.

The top performers this month are a study in contrasts. BM&F Bovespa has shown consistent performance throughout the year and they are currently doing very well as a monopoly exchange in a country doing better than most in the seeming never-ending financial crisis. Greece’s Hellenic Exchanges SA is a profitable company operating in a country at the epicentre of the Euro crisis.  Hellenic Exchanges profitability is against a background of a slight reduction in volumes and a reduction in fees for trading and post-trade services in the second half of 2010. The operating expenses of the Group were however significantly reduced and this may be paying off.”

The Index*, which aims to reflect market sentiment and is a key indicator of the exchanges’ performance, saw a 13.5 per cent increase in October 2011.

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index best performer by capital returns in US dollars was BM&F Bovespa with a 27.6 per cent increase in share price from 30 September to 31 October 2011. The next best performer was Greece’s Hellenic Exchanges SA with a 26 per cent increase over the same period.

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index worst performer by capital returns in US dollars was Romania’s Bursa de Valori Bucuresti with a 0.4 per cent decrease in share price from 30 September to 31 October 2011. This was followed by the Philippine Stock Exchange with a 4.4 per cent increase over the same period.
