I just read it on KRX. It seems that US traders will soon get an access to KOSPI index trading. It is about time, as it is one of the most liquid in the world. However, I am a bit confused if this move, will allow US traders to also trade on KRX, since this is where the liquidity is. Anyone has any clue? Kospi 200 option to be listed on U.S., German bourses The Kospi 200 option will be listed on the U.S. and German bourses in the second half of this year at the earliest. The method of listing is still being discussed, but a linked listing is most likely. However, even if it is listed through a linked listing, or, for that matter, a direct listing, most loyalty and fees will be paid to the Korea Exchange, leaving little left for allocation to Korean brokerage houses. The impact from the foreign listing on the local market will be small, if any, experts say. According to securities market sources, bourses in the U.S. and Europe are discussing ways to list Korean stock index futures and options in their countries with the Korea Exchange. In particular, discussion over this matter is picking up speed after officials from the U.S. and Europe visited Korea and held talks with the Korea Exchange during the international derivatives securities conference, which was hosted by the Korea Exchange on July 12. The Kospi 200 option is the most likely product to be listed overseas. It accounted for 73 percent of the aggregate volume of index options trading globally last year, and 20.4 percent of derivative products trading in the world. This indicates it has consolidated its leadership position among option products trading worldwide. As such, foreign securities markets have recognized its commercial value, with several bourses having already taken steps to introduce the Kospi 200 options to their markets. As for candidate bourses to list it, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange in the U.S. and EURONEXT are being considered.
