HKEx extends tech maintenance agreement with OMX for derivatives trading and clearing

Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing (HKEx) has extended its partnership with exchange technology vendor OMX for the support and maintenance of its derivatives trading and clearing and settlement systems for another five years.

HKEx has been using OMX’s technology for its HKATS trading system since 1995, and deployed the OMX DCASS clearing and settlement system in 2004. Since then, HKEx has implemented an integrated platform for the trading, clearing and settlement of all derivatives products in Hong Kong.

A total of 31.5 million futures and options contracts have traded on HKEx to date in 2007 (as of June 25), and open interest in futures and options stood at 5.47 million. That compares with 42.9 million futures and options contracts traded in total in 2006, and an average daily open interest of 3.03 million.
