Singapore Exchange Trader

I heard that many big traders are locating to Singapore to trade SGX products. Does anyone know why people would do this instead of just trading CME products?

Also if anyone trades SGX products how are they different from CME product let's say E-mini S&P?

I would like to know how deep their liquidity (Matrix) is and how volatile they are.

Thanks!

I have been thinking about this just recently and I think it is the low income tax rates in Singapore that is attracting investors and likes. Standard of living is of international standards and no tax on incoming funds so easy to migrate as well.

just my 2 cents..

Actually, they're moving to SG because of (1) time zone for trading the Asian markets, (2) tax and business regime, (3) cheap educated labor, and (4) consistent weather and infrastructure. It has very little to do with the SGX market tself.

Well, said!

Singapore rocks, and combines the many advantages of India (cheap labour, social web) and the like and offers a lifestyle on par with Europe and the like - while sporting humid weather like Mumbai that makes you sweat so that you don't miss home too much!

Is Singapore that good? I guess this isnt the case for American living in California cause 1) American needs to pay world wide income tax and 2) California weather is perfect?

So Singapore is mainly to trade asian markets not CME or Eurex products correct?

The only problem is if you are caught jaywalking you will most likely be beaten with a cane if not hung and quartered.

Correct on both counts!

The real reason is in Singapore an Indian can afford to have a housemaid, babysitter, and an army of servants. In California he would have to be in the Forbes list to do that.

Also, Singapore has banking secrecy which pisses Uncle Sam who has arm twisted it in a way that Singapore no longer accepts US resident bank accounts!

Not in the part called "Little India" - Indians there keep all the errant "traditions" alive and can be seen jaywalking freely. Try that at Clarke Quay and you will be down $5000 in a jiffy.

That's somewhat exaggerated from what I've seen.

It sounds like you visit the place quite often!

There's a few negative things I have to say about the place: The quality of life (pre-tertiary education, medical system, public transportation, range of recreational activities around you, food) is great; the culture isn't that great, there's a constant envy of others when you're living in a densely-packed society, innovation isn't well-rewarded, ownership isn't encouraged (no choice of retirement plan, everything goes into an opaque 'social security' plan, most real estate is on a limited lease and a constant risk of buyout from a government agency to build infrastructure, there are few homeowners and generic government housing is popular), and a great portion of the people are thankless and self-serving.
