Argentina and Uruguay to build new Derivatives Market

Mercado a Término de Buenos Aires – MATba (Buenos Aires  Futures and Options Exchange) and Bolsa de Valores de Montevideo- BVM (Uruguay’s Stock Exchange) announced that they will create a Futures and Options Exchange in Uruguay.

The new exchange will operate under the name “MATba Rio de la Plata Bolsa de Valores S. A.” and will be the first derivatives market in Uruguay. The two exchanges are waiting for Uruguay’s Central Bank approval to start working on the first contracts, which will probably be cattle and agricultural commodities, leaving currencies and other financial products for a second stage. All contracts will be cash settled and traded electronically.

The new Exchange will be located in Uruguay. MATba will manage the electronic platform and it will provide technical assistance in registration and clearing. Both Uruguayan and Argentine members of the two markets will be able to trade in MAtba Rio de la Plata Bolsa de Valores, which will open new business opportunities for traders as well as investment and arbitrage opportunities.
