Start trading JPX today via new POP in ATTOKYO CC2
Tokyo certainly isn’t shy when it comes to its presence on the world financial stage.
In 2017, Tokyo was ranked fifth in the worlds’ top financial hubs in Z/Yen’s Global Financial Centres Index (GCFI), and Governor Yuriko Koike announced her plan to transform Japan’s capital into the leading global financial hub by the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
This January also marked the fifth year anniversary of the Japan Exchange Group, Asia’s leading comprehensive exchange group based in Tokyo. The Group comprises the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) and Osaka Securities Exchange (OSE).
These last few months were filled with exciting developments for JPX. The TSE was recently voted the “Best ETF Stock Exchange” in Industry Journal’s 2018 “Best of the Best” Awards.
JPX, and CME Group, the world’s leading and most diverse marketplace, announced the launch of Japanese Yen-dominated Tokyo Stock Price Index (TOPIX) futures contracts which began trading this month.
To facilitate easy and direct access into JPX, we have a new point of presence (PoP) in AT Tokyo’s Chuo Data Center #2 (CC2). The new PoP enables the financial trading community to take advantage of the new contracts and arbitrage opportunities available in JPX, who also recently invested in new technology to modernise its post-trade and clearing infrastructure.
Financial institutions can also benefit from the state-of-the-art dark fibre metro ring between Tokyo’s three key financial data centres: KVH Tokyo DC1, Tokyo TY3 and @Tokyo CC2. This not only reduces the complexity associated with accessing Tokyo’s high-growth market but also enables seamless access to the market-leading low-latency FX circuit between New York – London – Tokyo, one of the busiest trading circuits in the world.
