The Year Ahead for NYSE Liffe U.S.

Coming out of a busy and productive FIA conference, we see continued growth in our exchange open interest with our 10th consecutive record day accompanied by strong volumes to match. And not just incremental growth either, as of March 19th, NYSE Liffe U.S. traded 96,000 contracts and reached 1,112,110 in total exchange OI, led by 917,366 lots in Eurodollars. This was an increase of 4,573 and 5,375 contracts from yesterday, respectively. In addition to announcing our Trinity project with DTCC and LCH.Clearnet, we met with our customers, partners and a range of industry participants to continue working to reinvent the global futures marketplace with a new trading and clearing model that puts the needs of the market first. We left Boca Raton with an even greater sense of enthusiasm and optimism that through NYSE Liffe U.S., NYPC and in the future, we have been making a difference and will continue to find ways to innovate and better serve our customers.

The video highlights an active 2011 for NYSE Liffe U.S. and lays out the roadmap for a pivotal 2012. Trust me when I say that we have even higher expectations for 2012!  On deck we have: DTCC GCF Repo Index futures, continued growth in our MSCI products, options on precious metals futures, Trinity…well you get the idea!  Needless to say, we are very pleased about how far we’ve come in less than a year, but we are even more excited about where we can go in the months ahead. One thing we never lose sight of, however, is that we don’t get there without you. Thanks for your support and as always, feel free to contact us at anytime for anything. We want to hear from you.
