NYSE's Overseas Expansion Could Help its Shares Trade Higher
NYSE will finance software licensing costs for three months, allowing institutional investors to access to the European Central Order Book, displaying liquidity in its aforementioned bond market while maintaining a consolidated database of bond markets that meet Cassiopeia criteria.
The display will be further reconfigured to include TradingScreen's multilateral trading facility, Galaxy, which is scheduled for launch shortly. (See our full analysis of NYSE Euronext stock here.)Elsewhere In Europe...
NYSE has also signed a co-operation agreement with the Cape Verde Stock Exchange through its Portuguese branch, the Euronext Lisbon. The two exchanges will work in tandem to develop the capital markets in Portugal and Cape Verde, engaging in training and focusing on providing higher liquidity while trading listed securities.The duo will look to identify potential avenues to help revive investor confidence in the reeling Portuguese and African economies and have also set up guidelines for joint ventures in the future.
We expect NYSE's investments to drive the European cash products trading volume through our forecast period.
The collaborations will help NYSE's European operations; the company recently launched a regulated exchange, NYSE Euronext London, after falling short in its earlier bid for the London Metal Exchange. (See NYSE Euronext Answers London Calling With Rival Exchange.)
It intends to expand its NYSE Liffe Clearing operations after terminating clearing services received from LCH.Clearnet. The company will migrate clearing services from derivatives markets in Amsterdam, Brussels, Lisbon and Paris to a central counterparty clearing house, NYSE Clearing, from 2013.
A central system will help improve operating savings and will attract more customers. We expect European derivatives trading volumes to increase through the Trefis forecast period, as market volatility promotes options trade.
