The Thailand Futures Exchange (TFEX) is a subsidiary of the Stock Exchange of Thailand. [1] The TFEX ranked number 44 in 2009 in the Futures Industry Association's global list of top 53 derivatives exchanges measured by volume, up 43% on 2008's volume figure.[2] The FIA list, published in early April 2010, reports that that total volume for 2009 rose to 3.07 million from 2008's figure of 2.15 million.

Direct Market Access[edit]

TFEX allows brokers to offer direct market access (DMA) to clients, allowing them to connect their trading applications with a broker’s front-end system, enabling a client’s order to be automatically routed through a broker and into the exchange without being handled manually.[3].
