Find out how MX extended trading hours can help investors diversify portfolios and manage risk.
As capital markets become more globally connected, institutional investors want the availability of round-the-clock trading to better manage risk and diversify their portfolios. In 2018, Montréal Exchange (MX) extended trading hours to meet demand for Canadian derivatives from investors in Europe. Later this year, MX will also start offering investors in Asia Pacific an opportunity to trade Canadian listed derivatives in their local time.
With extended trading hours, investors can better hedge and manage risk while executing cross-market strategies almost 24 hours a day. They can also benefit from enhanced market liquidity, greater price transparency and frictionless trading on a global marketplace. That's the MX advantage.
Montréal Exchange allows investors access to exchange-traded derivatives in Canada, supported by its proprietary trading technologies and clearing infrastructure. Its trading solutions help investors focus on margin optimization and risk management, meeting increasing demand for capital efficiency.
By extending trading hours on MX, international investors can capitalize on frictionless trading and portfolio diversification opportunities almost 24 hours a day.
Our extended trading hours will provide investors more opportunities to trade Canadian derivatives, hedge risk and optimize portfolios, in their local time and when it's convenient for them.

The Canadian Derivatives Clearing Corporation (CDCC) has developed a robust and flexible clearing framework to support the extension of trading and clearing hours. In line with Principles for Financial Market Infrastructures (PFMI) requirements for central clearing counterparties (CCPs) and with the objective of providing mutual protection to all CDCC clearing members, the proposed risk model aims to monitor the build-up of risk overnight and offers different options for clearing members for how to manage this risk overnight.
