Taifex offers 14 products, including futures and options on major Taiwan stock indexes, government bond futures, 30-day commercial paper interest rate futures, equity options and gold futures.
The exchange has taken measures to facilitate internationalisation and boost foreign participation. It now allows trading for non-hedging purposes by foreign investors, has introduced omnibus accounts and accepts margin deposits in dollars.
Taifex is also planning to launch four other stock index-related futures and options contracts and introduce spread orders in October.
