Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEx)'s Derivatives Market Transaction Survey 2007/08 (covering the period from July 2007 to June 2008) found that, driven by the increased dominance of stock options trading, the contribution of Exchange Participants' (EPs') principal trading to HKEx's derivatives (futures and options) market further increased, and retail investors' online trading grew strongly and accounted for nearly 40 per cent of all retail investor trading.

In 2007/08, derivatives market turnover increased by 87 per cent from 2006/07 to 105.7 million contracts. Of this, 56 per cent was trading in stock options, up from 47 per cent in 2006/07. By contract volume, stock options grew by 123 per cent from 26.3 million contracts in 2006/07 to 58.8 million contracts in 2007/08
