Singapore Exchange Considers Offering Non-Ferrous Metal Futures for Trading

The Singapore Exchange Ltd is considering offering non-ferrous metal futures contracts for trading on its derivitives market.

This situation arises out of the Singapore Exchange's partnership with the London Metals Exchange.

The futures that they are porposing to offer include:

  • LME-SGX Copper Futures Contract
  • LME-SGX Primary Aluminium Futures Contract
  • LME-SGX Zinc Futures Contract
  • LME-SGX Nickel Futures Contract

The addition of these new contracts will give Singapore Exchange a larger suite of commodities contracts, offering its global investors more trading, hedging and arbitraging opportunities. They will also serve to offer Asian market participants more options during the Asian trading hours.

The proposal is currently open to consulation and a paper outlining the rationale is available for download from the Singapore Exchange website. Market participants and members of the public are encouraged to voice their opinions and suggestions on the proposed contracts before September 9, 2010.
