TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

The bourse is discussing a trading link with the National Stock Exchange of India Ltd. that would make Singapore a gateway to the NSE’s derivatives market in Gujarat, Modi’s home state, said NSE Chief Executive Officer Vikram Limaye. An agreement would allow Singapore Exchange Ltd. to replace some of the business it’s set to lose after NSE canceled a licensing deal that allowed derivatives linked to the Nifty 50 Index to trade in the city-state.

“We had discussions earlier about a derivatives connect,” Limaye said in an interview on Wednesday. “That is a process that will resume and we will see how the discussion evolves. There is no reason why we cannot consider the proposal.”
