CME Group Strategic Partnership with Korea Exchange (KRX)

CME Group and Korea Exchange (KRX) have a strategic partnership realized through a market linkage agreement. The agreement enables KRX members to trade KOSPI 200 futures after hours on the CME Globex trading platform, via the KRX’s Unified System for Global Trading.

The partnership provides:

  • A global distribution network for the KOSPI 200 futures
  • Virtual 24-hour access to the contract via KRX member firms


About Korea Exchange
KRX operates a centralized securities and derivatives market where derivatives, stocks, and bonds are traded on a common platform. It offers:

  • Full access to both derivatives and cash markets
  • Clearing and settlement of all transactions on its markets as a one-stop service

Its flagship KOSPI 200 futures and options are two of the world’s most liquid index contracts. Few products combine widespread retail liquidity with institutional interest so successfully. The futures contract is a world leader among stock index futures contracts, with a total 2009 volume of over 83 million contracts traded. Its counterpart, the KOSPI 200 option, has been the world’s most actively traded derivatives product for several years.
