Hello Again Britons…
Welcome back to parishioners from the UK after your bank holiday weekend – here’s what you missed: EI yesterday.
In Today’s EI:
A New Chairman for SGX while Hillary Clinton’s mellifluous brilliance at trading is being used to suggest she may lack moral probity – surely not! DB1 holding BSE stake as is, not going the full 15% it seems (wonder what’s keeping them busy elsewhere)…SGX risking dual share move?
And there’s more…
DCOEX… Continue reading
Back in the world of listed equities, my first one minute video briefly discussing the forthcoming CEE Capital Markets Awards & CMU summit taking place September 15th in Warsaw. Nominees published here. If you are interested in CMU, you can’t afford to miss the summit while the Gala dinner is the event rewarding CEE listed companies. Prices range from from €295 for the summit, to €595 for the Gala & Summit together. Email me or follow this link HERE to… Continue reading
The DB1-LSE Merger of Equal Desperation has submitted their case to the EU antitrust which I remain confident will reject the deal. Today is 185 days in sinceFebruary 24 2016 which means we have 166 days on the countdown to a target zone of a decision – albeit the EU authorities themselves are suggesting an interim decision September 28th but that likely only marks the date they will go from a phase 1 investigation to a… Continue reading
Even the Bundesbank is worrying about the too big to bail/fail CCP business which would be the monopoly DB1-LSE as derivatives users worry about collateral roving costly – but not in the conventional economic sense… MCX and MSEI secure out of court agreement on warrants. With 14.99% of MSEI, MCX is well-positions, if, MSEI can survive and thrive. TMX may help BRVM with a West African Mining Exchange.
NSE appoints bankers, with BSE already on the IPO launch ramp – exciting times in India.
Meanwhile Dutch SME warnings over the proposed DB1 acquisition of LSE add to the crescendo of opposition to the merger of equal desperation.
I am briefly on video briefly discussing the forthcoming CEE Capital Markets Awards & CMU summit taking place September 15th in Warsaw. The nominees have just been published too. If you are interested in CMU, you can’t afford to miss the… Continue reading
SGX makes an acquisition and may even allow dual share classes, so one step forward and one back by the looks of it. Meanwhile 3 of Canada’s largest pension funds have halved their stakes in TMX.
Here is a video briefly discussing the forthcoming CEE Capital Markets Awards & CMU summit taking place September 15th in Warsaw. The nominees have just been published too. If you are interested in CMU, you can’t afford to miss the summit while the… Continue reading
The offices throb again and Exchange Invest daily is back in its more usual format. Thanks for all the plaudits for the Summer Special edition too.
Today we are catching up with the stories not already highlighted last week…
Meanwhile the second CEE Capital Markets awards are coming up mid-September (see banner to the left). The first CEE summit for CMU takes place on the same day, chaired by me – can you afford not to be there? Rates are… Continue reading
We maintain a quixotic schedule this week as the news flow is slow and thus today is a summer special edition to take us through the weekend…or perhaps keep you amused on your sun lounger if that is your wont next week. (We will be back with regular Exchange Invest Daily bulletins from Monday).
As expected the parish is pretty quiet – Europe celebrated the middle of summer holidays yesterday with festive traffic jams while Poland commemorated victory over Russia’s Communists in 1920. Remarkably both seemed to involve lots of people going to beaches, even though I thought General Pilsudski’s finest military hour came at the Battle of Warsaw, not a summer splash on the Baltic coast…
Exchange News: not much really but on scanning the headlines:
Good news in the parish as the 3 major US exchanges unite to make markets better. Meanwhile BATS picks up Javelin…Breaking just as we close for pixel, is news that Plato Partnership is apparently moving their supreme Soviet to Dublin with more news soon (I know until LIS most people had forgotten they existed) – h/t The Trade…
It’s that point where midsummer is upon us and next week we will have a daily news hiatus. The staff need… Continue reading
