Singapore Exchange Ltd (SGX) said on Tuesday the National Stock Exchange of India had applied for an interim injunction in an Indian court on SGX‘s new derivatives products, but SGX plans to go ahead and list them next month. “We have full confidence in our legal position and will vigorously defend this action.
