TFEX Managing Director Kesara Manchusree, said: “Since we implemented the change of position limit for stock futures on January 14, its trading volume has reached a record high of 80,183 contracts, a nine-fold rise from average daily trading volume of 8,849 contracts in 2012. This result in TFEX’s trading volume of 113,859 contracts.

The most actively-traded stock futures (in descending order) were BTS futures 58,182 contracts (72.56 percent), QH futures 6,024 contracts (7.51 percent), the rest were from TMB futures 4,058 contracts (5.06 percent), ITD futures 4,014 contracts (5.01 percent), and  KTB futures 3,625 contracts (4.52 percent).

Currently, TFEX has 30 underlying stocks which are all constituents in SET50 Index. The contract size is 1,000 shares and TFEX offers four contract months ending every month-end of quarter. The position limit change, starting on January 14, enables investors to hold contracts based on the listed shares of underlying stocks in a range of 20,000-435,500 contracts, from a single level of 20,000 contracts.
