Thailand Futures Exchange (TFEX) has said that in 2014 total trading volumes increased by 116% to a total of 36 million contracts, or 147,025 contracts per day.
The growth came from the increase in popularity of stock futures and adjustments made to reduce the contract size of SET50 futures.
During the year, TFEX added other services such as physical exchange services for US dollar futures and gold futures.
The exchange said that in 2015, it plans to boost liquidity, develop tools to support investors and expand the investor base both domestically and internationally.
“In 2015, TFEX plans to collaborate with its members to enhance liquidity of existing products, especially SET50 options and stock futures, by developing tools to support investors’ decision-making as well as increasing the number of market makers,” said TFEX managing director Rinjai Chakornpipat.
