Closing at 22187.70 on 29 May 2009, the Mondo Visione Exchanges Index, which aims to reflect market sentiment, has climbed back to a level not seen since early October 2008. Year to date, the index has increased by 40.6 per cent.
 
Last month, 17 of the 18 listed exchanges on the Mondo Visione Exchanges Index saw their values raised.
 
Herbie Skeete, managing director of Mondo Visione, says: "Shares of listed exchanges are up across the board from their lows of 2008. Derivatives markets are leading the pack, in-part on hopes that the US and European regulators plan to regulate over-the-counter derivatives, which could help exchanges and hurt the dealers who have fought hard to keep their opaque market private.
 
‘These changes in regulation should help fuel growth for exchange operators, particularly those who have the capacity to provide clearing services. But there is one potential problem looming for the integrated exchanges and the derivative exchanges in particular, and this is the threat by regulators to force separation of clearing from trading. At the moment the threat is a small cloud on the horizon – it may blow away or it may turn into a serious storm."
