This news come as we have learned from FX Week that “Elizabeth Missfeld, a foreign exchange dealer at Saxo Bank, has been appointed FX product manager on the same day the bank has launched USD/CNH options contracts on SaxoTrader.” With the introduction of new renminbi assets to trade like the new options contracts, renminbi gold pairs, and tightening of CNH spreads, surely Saxo is banking on an increase in volumes.
