The History Behind SGX; An Interview with Rama Pillai for The History of Financial Futures – a JLN Interview Series

In 1978, the Gold Exchange of Singapore (GES) was created by some Singaporean bullion dealers. Then in the early 1980s, the Monetary Authority of Singapore and financial community leaders sent teams around the world to examine different market structures. One was sent to Chiago to examine the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Pillai said. The Singaporean team sent to Chicago liked the CME model and felt it would work well in Singapore. This led to the creation of the Singapore International Monetary Exchange or SIMEX.

Part Two of Scott Early – The History of Financial Futures

Part two of the JLN interview with former CBOT General Counsel Scott Early in The History of Financial Futures series starts with him explaining why the Chicago Board of Trade’s market share went down each year he worked at the exchange.

Cannabis Shares Underperform Going Into Year-End Amid U.S. Regulatory Logjam

Cannabis Shares Underperform Going Into Year-End Amid U.S. Regulatory Logjam

SUZANNE COSGROVE Although adult-use sales of cannabis remain robust in U.S. states where it is legal, Nasdaq IR Intelligence analyst Saleem Daya sees continued stock underperformance across the cannabis space going into year-end, building on activity in the second and third quarters of 2021.
