Starting from July 3, 2023, the Singapore Exchange (SGX) will fully transition its SGX Nifty derivatives contracts to the National Stock Exchange of India (NSE) IFSC - SGX Connect. As per the circular issued by SGX to its market participants, the transition will result in the suspension of trading for SGX Nifty after the T session on June 30, 2023. All US dollar denominated Nifty derivatives contracts will be exclusively traded on NSE IFSC after the transition.
SGX will migrate all open positions in SGX Nifty to NSE IFSC Nifty for those who do not close their positions before June 30, 2023. The SGX Nifty will be delisted later, pending regulatory approval.
The conversion ratio for SGX Nifty positions to NSE IFSC Nifty positions will be 1:1. The liquidity switch will be performed over the weekend after June 30, 2023, and relevant clearing and position transfer fees will be waived by SGX. The trading sessions and timings for NSE IFSC Nifty will remain the same.
Hi Shrimohan, Thanks for the quick response.
While I am a NRI, and possess some family resident account as well.
So being a NRI, I can trade right ? If yes, any links for the detailed reference information like how to open an Account for trading, etc. Apologies, but couldn’t find any so.
Hi @dhimant anytime! Yes being an NRI you can trade in IFSC. You need to open an account with an IFSC registered Broker. We have also setup a subsidiary in GIFT City and will start operations there soon. However, exact timelines of this will be subjective, as US markets are in correction mode for a while and also things are just unfolding about the regulations (Trading in Forex has too many hurdles - Right from RBI’s upper cap on LRS to the recently introduced TCS on Remittances). I would recommend you to explore the market depth first over https://www.nseifsc.com/markets/derivatives-watch and then go-ahead with actual trading.
