May 18, 2021 OSETOCOM Timing of Start of Derivatives Holiday Trading


Osaka Exchange, Inc. (OSE) and Tokyo Commodity Exchange, Inc. (TOCOM) are currently discussing the introduction of derivatives holiday trading from the perspective of further convenience for investors through provision of hedging opportunities during national holidays, thereby strengthening the competitiveness of Japan's derivatives markets. In January 2020, OSE established a "Working Group on Derivatives Holiday Trading" consisting of market participants, and published a summary of the results of said Working Group's discussions in the form of a report* in June 2020.
Based on that report and subsequent discussions, we today announce that the start of derivatives holiday trading has been set for around September 2022.

  • Holiday trading rules will enable trading on current non-business days specified by the Exchanges (excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and January 1). Please see the below link for a summary. Detailed rules will be published later.
