ISE shows Options TV
The International Securities Exchange (ISE), the world’s largest equity options exchange and a wholly owned subsidiary of Eurex, has launched FX Options TV in partnership with Trading Central New York Financial Press (NYFP). Produced by NYFP and hosted by currency expert Remy Blaire, FX Options TV is a weekly online programme that focuses on macro-economic events and long-term analysis of the global currency markets. It also features Trading Central’s independent views on the psychological and technical factors driving the industry.
ISE lists several currency contracts, which have met with only modest interest so far. However, given the exchange’s history – it revolutionised the US equity options market – its attempts to break into FX options is worth watching. The TV show wants to make more people aware of the possibilities of trading FX options.
“We are very pleased to expand the breadth of our options education programme with the launch of FX Options TV,” says Bruce Goldberg, ISE’s chief marketing officer. “Trading Central’s in-depth analysis of global currency markets will complement our existing efforts to educate investors about how they can use FX options to hedge their risk in this very important segment of the financial marketplace.”
