TAIFEX launched two new ETF Futures associated with China’s stock indices (FTSE China A50 Index and SZSE 100 Index) on July 8, 2015. They added to the exchange's current ETF Futures suite, making a total of six ETF Futures linking to China stock indices.
Before the launch, TAIFEX had already listed futures on several domestic and offshore ETFs.
The two newest ETF Futures further expanded the exchanges coverage of offerings over China’s major stock indices and allowed investors to be more flexible on their trading and hedging strategies.
TAIFEX plans to extend the trading session of the ETF Futures on China stocks to 4:15pm Taiwan time, starting on Jul 20, 2015, in order to cover the entire trading hours of China’s stock market.
