OKEx To Launch Options Trading

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 13 dicembre 2019

OKEx, the world’s largest spot and futures digital asset exchange by trading volume, today announced the launch of options trading. Developed from the ground up, OKEx Options represents a complete upgrade to the platform’s trading architecture, backed by a faster, more stable and robust infrastructure. Options trading will be available on OKEx starting from December 27, 2019, and simulation began on December 12, 2019. With this addition, OKEx is the first crypto exchange to offer C2C, spot, futures, perpetual swap, and options trading under the same roof. Users can select from a wide range of products to best fit their trading and hedging strategies.
Options trading is a type of derivatives trading that gives the buyer the ability to purchase or sell an underlying asset after paying a premium. OKEx Options will offer both buy and write options, which enhances trade flexibility and market transparency with trade prices that closely reflect market trends. OKEx’s version is a major improvement upon other platforms that only support buy options.
OKEx Options also includes a rigorous anti-manipulation system. Designed to prevent close price manipulation, OKEx averages out the spot data from multiple platforms to obtain a fair settlement price. The options mark price is determined by OKEx in real time using the Black-scholes pricing model. Since a single transaction or quote cannot affect the options market — which only responds to estimated options volatility.

ISDA Publishes Asia Derivatives Survey

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 11 aprile 2019

Trading volumes in Asia’s derivatives markets are expected to increase, but achieving certainty on close-out netting is identified as an important factor in driving further development of local markets, according to a new survey of derivatives market participants active in Asia-Pacific, published by ISDA to coincide with the start of the 34th ISDA Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Hong Kong.Nearly three quarters of survey respondents expect the proportion of foreign exchange derivatives trading executed in Asia ex-Japan to increase over the next three to five years, while 63% predict an increase in the share of interest rate derivatives traded in the region.
Singapore and Hong Kong are expected to be the most important centers for derivatives trading in the region, followed by Tokyo, Shanghai and Sydney. Among the factors determining the location of their trading activities, market participants point to a sound legal and regulatory framework, the depth and breadth of market infrastructure, access to customers and counterparties, and netting certainty.In fact, achieving certainty on close-out netting is considered essential to the further development of robust, liquid and efficient derivatives markets in Asia, with 47% of survey respondents citing this as very important. More than half pointed to the enforceability of close-out netting as having the greatest impact on their firm’s derivatives and risk management activities in Asia.
ISDA has worked with authorities across the globe to help draft legislation on the enforceability of close-out netting. ISDA netting opinions are currently available in more than 70 countries. Last October, ISDA published the 2018 update to its Model Netting Act, which is designed to provide a template than can be used by jurisdictions considering close-out netting legislation.

Saxo Bank apre una sede ad Atene

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 27 settembre 2009

L’apertura di un nuovo ufficio ad Atene rappresenta una mossa strategica volta a rafforzare e ad espandere la leadership di Saxo Bank quale fornitore di soluzioni di investimento online in uno dei mercati europei a più rapida crescita, in linea con l’aumento del numero dei clienti greci e con la crescente domanda che arriva dall’Europa meridionale di servizi finanziari e di trading via Internet.  La sede di Atene sarà diretta da Emmanouil Lemonakis, in Saxo Bank dal 2006 e con una approfondita conoscenza del mercato greco e dell’Europa Meridionale. Lemonakis ha così commentato: “I rapporti di Saxo Bank con la comunità degli investitori greci sono iniziati nel 2000; ma è solo negli ultimi quattro anni che il mercato greco è cresciuto notevolmente, richiedendo l’assegnazione di più risorse per rispondere alle esigenze dei suoi clienti e di quelli di Cipro, che saranno serviti dalla sede di Atene. La nuova sede ci permetterà di operare a più stretto contatto con i nostri clienti nella regione e di rispondere al meglio alle loro necessità. ”  Kim Fournais e Lars Seier Christensen, co-fondatori e CEO di Saxo Bank, hanno così commentato in una dichiarazione congiunta: “Il vero vantaggio di Saxo Bank è nel fatto che combiniamo tecnologia e rapporti umani. Ecco perché continuiamo a espandere la nostra presenza geografica. La nuova sede greca ha tutte le caratteristiche che consideriamo della massima importanza in tutti i paesi in cui operiamo: il team giusto e una posizione strategica vicina alla comunità finanziaria nonché un forte interesse da parte dei clienti dell’area. La sede di Atene, basata sul modello che seguiamo in tutte le nostre nuove sedi, è dimensionalmente appropriata e consente una maggiore flessibilità e rapporti personali più stretti con la nostra clientela”.  Oltre alla Grecia, nel 2009 Saxo Bank ha aperto sedi a Milano, Praga e Dubai, mentre appena la scorsa settimana è stata aperta una nuova sede ad Amsterdam.
