Every trading day the gong is sounded in Amsterdam to mark the opening (9.00 am) and closing (17.30 pm) of the trading session.
NYSE Liffe, the European derivatives market of NYSE Euronext (NYX), today launches futures on the AMX-Index®, the index for medium sized Dutch companies.
The introduction of AMX-Index futures marks the further expansion of NYSE Liffe’s successful range of products within the Amsterdam market. The AMX-Index includes well known Dutch companies such as Imtech, Nutreco and Vopak and has been one of the best performing mid-cap indices in Europe in recent years. The existing options on individual AMX®equities are very popular, and in 2011 more than 5.3 million of them were traded.
Eelco Hoekstra, CEO, and Jack de Kreij, CFO, of Vopak will attend the gong ceremony as the Best Performer of the AMX-Index last year.
