Stock Exchange news worldwide

I recently found an interesting resource on stock exchange news, covering some of the same aspects – such as development of market structures including links, back offices, technology and mergers – that this blog aims to cover. It is the Trading Room section of the UK’s Financial Times newspaper and website, and here is its address: http://www.ft.com/trading-room.
This is how it describes itself:
“The FT Trading Room is all about one thing: market structures. It’s a dry-sounding phrase but it encompasses one of the most dynamic and important parts of the financial world that it likely to affect banks, brokers, exchanges, clearing houses, settlement systems, asset managers and – let’s not forget – the ordinary investing public for years to come.
Whether you are interested in high-frequency trading, trading technology, the “flash crash”, the Mifid review in Europe, equities fragmentation in Asia, OTC derivatives, clearing, T2S, the Dodd-Frank act and the European Commission’s equivalent reforms, it’s all here on FT Trading Room, a new section of FT.com offering a single source of intelligence for the global community at the heart of all these developments from New York to Mumbai, London to São Paolo.
It is supported by the FT’s unmatched global network of correspondents and is edited in London by Jeremy Grant, who has focused on trading, exchanges, clearing and financial regulation in his previous FT assignments in Chicago and Washington, DC.”
Recent hot stories include: the US$8.3 billion takeover bid by Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX) for Australian Stock Exchange (ASX), part of competition for China’s Hong Kong Stock Exchange as more of the world’s trading volumes move to Asia; the career of Swede Magnus Bocker who built the Nordic OMX exchanges group and then merged with Nasdaq in 2008; and technology upgrades. There is still some room to increase coverage of African stock exchanges.
