Start accessing the markets of The Tokyo Financial Exchange.
In 1989 the Tokyo Financial Exchange (TFX) was established. Originally a Futures Exchange, the TFX transformed in 2007. It was at this time that the TFX transitioned from being a “Futures Exchange” into a “Financial Exchange”. Through this change, the exchange has opened its scope to any type of product. All of this contributes to the growth of the Japanese financial markets.
The core businesses of the Tokyo Financial Exchange:
- Offer financial instruments that handle securities as well as market derivatives.
- Clearing of market derivatives traded at the TFX
The TFX has evolved into an exchange of diverse products. There are three main types of contracts traded on the Tokyo Financial Exchange. Interest Rate, FX, and Equity Index markets.
Interest rate futures traded on the TFX. Three-month Euroyen Futures, Options on Three-month Euroyen Futures, and Over-Night Call Rate Futures. Follow these markets to gain a better understanding of how Japan and the EU countries are connected in the interest rate market.
Exchange Equity Index Margin Contracts (Click Kabu 365) traded on the TFX compliment the portfolio of derivatives offered. There is the Japanese Nikkei225 margin contract, the DAX Index, and FTSE 100 Index available to online traders. These contracts are valued in Yen. This helps investors trade these indexes while keeping the trade focused with a perspective on Japan. Trading these markets removes the need for currency conversions from the process as well.
FX Margin Contracts
The most competitive price offered. The TFX provides the most competitive pricing amongst leading institutions. Transparent trading is heightened by information on tradable volume made available to investors. There is also a single swap point price offered on Click365 contracts. This removes any ability to retain extra profit in the swap point by the exchange.
Nikkei 225 Yen is one of the best gauges of the strength or weakness present in the Japanese Equity markets. It is valued in Yen which locks in the currency value component. The following weekly chart gives a medium term perspective of how this market is trending.
