Mixed Quarter For Exchange Groups In March As Volumes Rise On Back Of Increased Volatility, FTSE Mondo Visione Exchanges Index Down By 1.6% In March, But Up By 7.8% In Q1

Date 06/04/2018

After a positive start to the year, it has been a rough first quarter for exchange groups with over half of the constituents in negative territory over the quarter as the spectre of a US/China trade dispute cast a long shadow over markets.

The Index, which aims to reflect market sentiment and is a key indicator of exchanges performance closed at 51,176.7 on 30 March 2018, down from 51,993.9 on 28 February 2018.

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

“To misquote Charles Dickens, for exchanges, it was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. Spring fever it ain’t, but the CME/NEX deal shows that the era of cross-border exchange mega-mergers isn’t over. The question is, who or what’s NEX?”
