Global Exchanges Recover From March Losses, FTSE Mondo Visione Index Up 3.3.% In April - Up 29.4% Over 12 Months

Date 11/05/2021

Global exchanges rebounded from the losses suffered in February and March with the FTSE Mondo Visione Index gaining 3.3% in April. The index closed at 74,469.49 points, up from the March close of 72,106.76, but below a new closing all-time high of 78,106.07 set on 19 February 2021.

 

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

The top 5 exchanges by market capitalisation at the end of April were:

Exchange Market Cap (USD bn)
Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing 76.72
CME Group 71.57
Intercontinental Exchange 65.07
London Stock Exchange Group 37.02
Deutsche Boerse 31.64

The best performer by capital returns in US dollars was the Bulgarian Stock Exchange with a 16.4 per cent increase in share price from 30 March 2021 to 30 April 2021. The next best performer was the Philippine Stock Exchange with a 13.2 per cent increase, followed by Aquis Exchange with an 12.7 per cent increase over the same period.

The worst performer by capital returns in US dollars was Bursa Malaysia with an 4.7 per cent decrease in share price from 30 March 2021 to 30 April 2021. This was followed by Multi Commodity Exchange of India with a 3.7 per cent decline and Brazil's B3 SA with an 1.9 per cent decrease over the same period.

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

"During the 1990s, in addition to the already established Instinet, a significant number of new players emerged in the form of Alternative Trading Systems (ATSs) or Electronic Communications Networks (ECNs). These new players attracted substantial trading volume away from the traditional exchanges. However,following the bursting of the high-tech bubble, the number of ECNs shrank as they folded or merged due to lower volumes. The established exchanges recaptured some of their lost market share by developing similar order-driven systems and by taking over some of the most successful of these new entrants. As the trading of digital assets takes off, will we see history repeat itself? Will the traditional exchanges don the crypto exchanges clothing before swallowing up the best of them? Or will some of the digital exchanges use their still significant fiat valuations to acquire established exchanges? "
