THE Tokyo Commodity Exchange plans to begin round-the-clock trading by March 2010 to attract more investors when global competition is increasing. Japan's top commodities bourse will extend trading hours by two hours to 5:30 p. m. (0830 GMT) from January 7. This will allow it to overlap more with other markets such as Singapore and London. It plans to extend hours further to 11:00 p. m. (1400 GMT) by March 2009 and aims to upgrade its trading systems by this time. The exchange aims to start round-the-clock trade within one year after upgrading the system.
