HKEX to Launch Derivatives Holiday Trading on 9 May

Market Operations
11 Mar 2022

Taking into account market feedback and market readiness, Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX) is pleased to confirm today (Friday) that, subject to regulatory approval, its Derivatives Holiday Trading service will commence on 9 May 2022 for Buddha’s Birthday public holiday.

HKEX received strong market support for the launch of futures and options trading and clearing services on Hong Kong public holidays for non-Hong Kong Dollar (HKD) denominated products, and conducted a successful market readiness test with market participants in late February.

Derivatives Holiday Trading will allow international investors to trade these non-HKD products during Hong Kong holidays, when the markets of their underlying securities may be open. HKEX plans to add non-HKD denominated futures and options to Derivatives Holiday Trading in phases, with the first suite of products being all MSCI futures and options contracts.
