    Singapore Exchange's growth ambitions undermined by MSCI's HK move

    Singapore Exchange <SGXL.SI> faces a threat to its growth strategy after index provider MSCI decided to shift licensing of many derivatives to Hong Kong, jeopardising the status of what was just a month ago one of the best sector performers globally. SGX shares fell 7% on Thursday, extending the previous day's 11.6% slump - the biggest in over 16 years - as analysts cut their earnings forecasts after MSCI's surprise announcement on Wednesday. Rapid growth in derivatives products, led by equities, has buoyed SGX's business over the past few years.

    Singapore Exchange shares post steepest drop since 2008 on end of MSCI licence

    Shares in bourse operator Singapore Exchange Ltd <SGXL.SI> suffered their steepest daily fall in more than a decade after the company said its profit would be hit when a licence to offer a suite of regional equity derivatives ends in February 2021. Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Ltd <0388.HK> will instead host trade in the contracts, which are tied to MSCI Inc's <MSCI.N> indexes and licensed from MSCI. Singapore Exchange estimates a potential 10-15% hit to next year's profit as a result.

    Singapore Exchange third-quarter profit hits 13-year high as trading volumes surge amid pandemic

    Singapore Exchange's profit jumped 38% to a 13-year high in the January-March quarter as extreme market volatility amid the coronavirus outbreak boosted equities and derivatives trading volumes. Other exchanges are also likely to benefit from the rising volatility, although SGX's strength in derivative products means it is particularly well placed among Asian bourses to do so. "With uncertainty around the eventual economic and financial impact of COVID-19 and path to recovery, these elevated levels of volatility are likely to be prolonged," Chief Executive Loh Boon Chye said in a statement on Friday.

    SE Asia Stocks-Bounce back on stimulus hopes; Singapore biggest gainer

    * Trump vows to take "major" steps to shield economy * Singapore sees best session since June 2016 * Recovery in oil prices boosts energy stocks By Shruti Sonal March 10 (Reuters) - Southeast Asian stocks ended higher on Tuesday, rebounding from steep losses in the previous session, on rising hopes that stimulus measures from global policymakers would help shield economies from the impact of the coronavirus. U.S. Treasury yields edged higher and oil prices recovered some losses after U.S. President Donald Trump vowed to take "major" steps to blunt the economic impact of the coronavirus outbreak, while speculation of more rate cuts and fiscal stimulus measures by central banks across the world also rose. "A combination of bargain hunting after previous session's sharp declines and hopes of more stimulus measures have led to some respite for markets in the region," said Joel Ng, a Singapore-based analyst at KGI Securities.

    SE Asia Stocks-Most rise on stimulus hopes, bargain hunting

    * Trump vows to take "major steps" to shield economy * Singapore shares see best session since Dec. 2018 * Philippine stocks fall for third straight session By Shruti Sonal March 10 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets bounced back on Tuesday from steep falls in the previous session, as investors picked up beaten-down stocks amid speculation of coordinated stimulus measures from central banks. U.S. President Donald Trump vowed to take "major" steps to shield the economy against the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, while speculation of more central bank rate cuts and fiscal stimulus measures also rose. Selling pressure eased in most Southeast Asian markets, in line with their broader Asian peers, but investors remained cautious.

The virus outbreak, which has claimed over 3,800 lives around the world, has rattled investors and curbed risk sentiment across global financial markets. Coronavirus-related fears sent global stocks nose diving on Monday, with losses compounded by free-falling crude oil prices.

    RPT-China markets feel the pain of stalled derivatives rollout

    SHANGHAI/HONG KONG, Nov 4 (Reuters) - A long list of stock and currency derivatives has been lying in wait for regulatory approval at the China Financial Futures Exchange (CFFEX), some for nearly a decade. "You need to tell the public that not every fund manager coming to China is George Soros, that you use derivatives to manage long positions, not to short China," the exchange's vice president Zhang Xiaogang told a seminar in Shanghai. Zhang told his audience of mostly China-based executives of global money managers to speak up for the benefits of derivatives in investments, as "bad public perception makes it difficult for new products to be approved".

    SE Asia Stocks-Most fall as trade uncertainty, slowdown worries bite

    * Washington plans partial trade deal with Beijing at Chile summit * Indonesia set to post biggest weekly gain in nearly 5 months * Singapore Exchange rises 7.5% after strong Q1 results By Sameer Manekar Oct 25 (Reuters) - Most Southeast Asian stock markets traded in the red on Friday as uncertainty over the Sino-U.S. trade deal was revived ahead of fresh rounds of negotiations, while concerns about global economic slowdown continued to rattle confidence. Investors are also nervous ahead of a summit in Chile where U.S. President Donald Trump hopes to finalise a partial trade deal with China's Xi Jinping. Also dampening sentiment, a Reuters poll of economists found that the recent truce in the U.S.-China trade dispute is not an economic turning point and has failed to reduce a significant risk that the world's biggest economy could slip into recession in the next two years.

The latest jolt came early this month, when authorities surprised markets by letting the yuan slide through the psychological support level of 7 to the dollar to decade lows, unsettling Chinese firms such as exporters and heavy borrowers of foreign debt.

    UPDATE 1-Singapore to stop 'Sling' LNG indices, sheds hopes of main price hub

    Singapore Exchange will stop producing and publishing its spot price indices - Sling - for liquefied natural gas (LNG), less than four years after their launch, dashing the city-state's hopes of becoming Asia's main pricing hub for the fuel. Sling - short for SGX LNG Index Group - indices will be published until Oct. 31 this year, provided "there is sufficient data for an accurate and robust index to be published", Energy Market Company (EMC) said in an undated statement on its website. Sling was developed jointly by EMC, the market operator of Singapore's wholesale electricity market, and Singapore Exchange (SGX), and introduced in late 2015 in a bid to develop Singapore as a price hub for the super-chilled fuel.
