FXDD Global today announced that due to limited liquidity and low trading volumes it will discontinue trading on ITA40 and SUI20. The Swiss and Italian indices have not been very popular with traders due to a variety of reasons. While Italian stocks have been generally volatile, the local regulatory requirements specific to the bourse in Milan have prompted brokers to dramatically increase spreads or introduce commissions.
At the same time the Swiss index has not seen investor demand due to the relative unpopularity of the index amongst traders.
