Trading Starts 15 Minutes Earlier on the CPI release day

(November 19, 2004)

Bank of Japan says the condition of quantitative easing policy is to be in place until the year-on-year rate of change in the Consumer Price Index (excluding fresh food, on a nationwide basis) registers zero percent or higher on a sustainable basis. Therefore the Consumer Price Index has attracted attention in the market.

To provide TIFFE's members and customers with trading opportunities, TIFFE decided the temporary change of trading hours for all contracts, responding to the release of the Consumer Price Index from November 26, 2004.

・ Pre-open 8:30am - 8:45am (Normal days 8:45am - 9:00am)
・ Open of morning session 8:45am (Normal days 9:00am)

Other trading hours are the same as usual.
