US Exchanges Lead League Table Of Two Halves - Index Closed Up 1.4 Per Cent In February

Date 15/03/2013

While the exchanges sector remained largely flat in February, US exchanges pushed their way into the top half of the FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index with all experiencing positive share value growth during the month.

The Index*, which aims to reflect market sentiment and is a key indicator of the exchanges’ performance, saw a 1.4 per cent increase in February 2013.

Commenting on the Index which closed up at 25,449.78 on 28 February 2013, Herbie Skeete, Managing Director, Mondo Visione and Co-founder of the Index said:

“The Futures Industry Association’s annual conference in Boca Raton, Florida, this week reflected the changing of the guard currently taking place in the world of exchanges. Jeffrey Sprecher, CEO of IntercontinentalExchange, was the undoubted star of the show.

“IntercontinentalExchange has yet to apply for approval from European Union competition officials for its planned takeover of NYSE Euronext and is focusing instead on discussions with individual member states. Last year EU regulators blocked the planned merger of NYSE and Deutsche Boerse but this is unlikely to happen this time around,” he says.

The Moscow Exchange was added to the FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index from the opening of trading on Friday, February 22, 2013. The Moscow Exchange was listed solely in Russia on Friday, February 15, 2013 and was created via the merger of MICEX and the RTS Exchange in December 2011.

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index best performer by capital returns in US dollars was Japan Exchange with a 27 per cent increase in share price from 31 January to 28 February 2013. The next best performer was Nasdaq OMX Group with an 11.8 per cent increase over the same period.

The FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index worst performer by capital returns in US dollars was Multi Commodity Exchange of India with a 20.9 per cent decrease in share price from 31 January to 28 February 2013. This was followed by Romania’s SC Bursa de Valori Bucuresti SA with a 9.3 per cent decrease over the same period.
