Thailand Futures Exchange promotes futures and options amid bullish market
Bangkok, March 27, 2013 – The Thailand Futures Exchange PCL (TFEX), under The Stock Exchange of Thailand group, gears up to provide expertise to investors during time of bullish market sentiment by organizing the “TFEX Futures Day: Futures, Options Investment Festival” on March 31 to present investors with information and investment techniques covering all TFEX products.

TFEX Managing Director Kesara Manchusree said that TFEX products have currently gained more popularity among investors due to the variety of products which could meet demand from all segments, such as the equities, commodity, currency, and interest rate markets. Since the start of this year until March 26, average daily trading volume was at 76,498 contracts and the top three actively traded products have been stock futures, accounting for 53.9 percent of the total trading; SET50 Index futures, and gold futures, respectively.

Trading volume of stock futures has outperformed other products, hitting a new record high of 139,483 contracts on March 22. Average daily trading volume of stock futures rose more than threefold to 41,218 contracts (data as of March 26), up from 8,849 contracts in 2012, Kesara added.
“Investors are increasingly keen on trading TFEX products to manage risk during a bullish and fluctuating market, particularly SET50 Index futures and stock futures. To help investors benefit from TFEX products and manage their portfolios effectively and efficiently, TFEX provides expertise on derivatives trading for investors. Thus, this year, TFEX will hold activities promoting financial literacy on a continuous basis, including ‘TFEX Futures Day,’ to help investors become familiar with trading futures and options in a single day,” Kesara said.

The event is under the concept “Three processes – Easy, Study, and Ready – to become a futures and options trader”, focusing on presenting information and investment techniques covering all products of TFEX, enabling new and existing investors to be futures and options traders in a day.
