Global exchanges say to stay open during coronavirus crisis

Thu 19th March, 2020 11:26am
LONDON, March 19 (Reuters) - Stock and derivatives exchanges
will remain open despite extraordinary volatility in global
financial markets, the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE) said
on Thursday.
    "Even as our present crisis causes large swings in markets
and operational pressure on market infrastructures, these
functions remain critically important," the WFE said in a
statement.
    "It is important that markets remain open and that the hours
of trading remain as normal, to preserve the benefits of price
formation and access to liquidity for society."
    The WFE represents exchanges and clearing houses from across
the world, including CME, Nasdaq, Shanghai Stock Exchange, Japan
Exchange and Deutsche Boerse.
