Exchanges Sector Sees Stellar Growth - January 2013 Index Closed Up 10.5 Per Cent – Highest Rise In The Past Year

Date 14/02/2013

The exchanges sector experienced exceptional performance growth across the board in January to kick off the New Year, according to the FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index.

Against a backdrop of ongoing merger and collaboration talks, with some exchanges experiencing an increase in trading volumes, many constituents of the Index saw their share price value achieve better results in January than they have seen in more than two years.

The Index*, which aims to reflect market sentiment and is a key indicator of the exchanges’ performance, saw a 10.5 per cent increase in January 2013.

Commenting on the Index which closed up at 25,104.42 on 31 January 2013, Herbie Skeete, Managing Director, Mondo Visione and Co-founder of the Index said:

“Are the tectonic plates shifting again in the world of exchanges or has the game of exchange musical chairs started again with the players anxious not to be left without a chair when the music stops?

“It is too early to tell, but NYSE Euronext linking up with IntercontinentalExchange, and HKEx acquiring the London Metal Exchange and many other significant deals working their way through, has certainly generated market talk of significant exchanges trying to expand through M&A strategies and even talk of some going private,” he says.

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index best performer by capital returns in US dollars was Dubai Financial Market with a 25.5 per cent increase in share price from 31 December 2012 to 31 January 2013. The next best performer was Greece’s Hellenic Exchanges SA with a 20 per cent increase over the same period.

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index worst performer by capital returns in US dollars was South Africa’s Johannesburg Stock Exchange with a 16.7 per cent decrease in share price from 31 December 2012 to 31 January 2013. This was followed by the Multi Commodity Exchange of India with a 0.7 per cent decrease over the same period.
