Regulators announce changes to options trading rules, in follow-up to plans announced in December 2010.

The Financial Services Commission of Korea (FSC) and Korea Exchange (KRX) have announced a number of impending changes to rules governing options and stock trading on the exchange. FSC guidelines published on January 11, 2011, and followed up by corresponding KRX announcements on January 27 and 31, 2010, flesh out the FSC agenda announced on December 7, 2010,1 but also include further innovations. Inspired by a stock market β€œshock” in November 2010, the new rules aim to narrow derivatives exposure of investors and brokerage firms, and to curb volatility due to program trading, particularly heavy volume trading just before market close.
