Mar. 14, 2012 (China Knowledge) - China
Financial Futures Exchange (CFFEX) is considering resuming the trading of treasury bond futures, said Zhu Yuchen, general manager of the exchange, on the sidelines of the country's National People's Congress, sources reported.
Zhu noted that no timetable has been set for the relaunch of the trading, although the CFFEX has made full preparations.
The exchange has finished the initial design of the futures contracts tracking medium-term bonds with a maturity of four to seven years, and completed the design of trading rules, including systematic risk prevention, said Zhu.
Zhu added that the trading of T-bond futures mainly targets institutional investors as it requires high technical threshold.
In 1995, China
suspended T-bond futures trading after a illegal and excessive speculation scandal.
