Tokyo Financial Exchange was ranked as the 30th in terms of derivatives volume in 2017, according to the Futures Industry Association's annual volume survey. It reported 38.4 million contracts traded in 2017, down 26.1 percent from 52 million contracts a year earlier.
The exchange was established in April 1989 under the Financial Futures Trading Law of Japan. Because the Financial Futures Trading Law was abolished and the Financial Instruments and Exchange Law was enforced in September 2007, TFX transformed from a financial futures exchange into a more comprehensive financial exchange that handles any type of financial products.
On June 22, 2009 the TFX gained 'recognized market operator' status from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), allowing Singaporean investors to become remote TFX members and trade its contracts directly. In January 2010 the TFX was sued by a group of Japanese investors over a scandal involving German bank Commerzbank mispricing forex contracts between the South African rand and the Japanese yen.
