The ratings agency says the rating has been withdrawn for its own business reasons At the time of the withdrawal, the outlook on the bank's long-term ratings was negative while the standalone E BFSR carried a stable outlook - Malaysian builder MMC Corp Bhd said earlier today that it will list its power unit Malakoff Bhd (IPO-MALB.KL) in a deal bankers expect to raise more than $1bn dollars. The IPO, for up to 30.4% of Malakoff's capital, was deferred earlier this year and approval from the Securities Commission lapsed as a result. MMC, controlled by reclusive Malaysian tycoon Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary, will resubmit the application within one month and expects the deal to be completed by second quarter of 2015, according to a local stock exchange filing – According to local press report the newly minted Somalia Stock Exchange expects seven companies in the telecoms, financial services and transport sectors to list when it is set up in 2015. Somalia's economy is slowly recovering from more than two decades of conflict, although the government is still battling an Islamist insurgency. Amid the chaos, some businesses have thrived, including money transfer and mobile phone firms. The Somalia Stock Exchange has opened administrative offices in Mogadishu and other Somali centres like Kismayu, as well as in Nairobi, to help recruitment and in other related issues - Moody's has upgraded to Baa1 from Baa2 the long-term deposit ratings of China CITIC Bank International Limited, and affirmed the bank's P-2 short-term deposit ratings.

The bank's baseline credit assessment (BCA) is unchanged at baa3. The outlook on all the ratings is stable. The rating action concludes Moody's review for upgrade for China CITIC Bank International, which was initiated on September 2nd this year, after the senior unsecured bond rating of its ultimate parents CITIC Group Corporation and CITIC Limited (formerly CITIC Pacific Limited) were upgraded to A3 from Baa2. CITIC Group Corporation, wholly owned by China's Ministry of Finance, owns 78% of CITIC Limited, which in turn owns 67% of China CITIC Bank.

SIX Swiss Exchange has successfully completed the upgrade of its trading
platform. The upgrade was developed in collaboration with NASDAQ OMX.
At the same time, SIX Swiss Exchange is launching a co-location service
for the new platform in association with Equinix. Starting today, SIX Swiss
Exchange offers participants the most modern trading technology in the
world.

SIX Swiss Exchange has successfully completed the upgrade of its SWXess
trading platform with the X-stream INET technology developed by NASDAQ
OMX. SIX Swiss Exchange is the first exchange globally to combine the triedand-
tested capabilities of the X-stream platform with INET trading technology –
the world's fastest.

On April 23rd SIX Swiss Exchange launched equity trading using the very latest
technology. With this step, SIX Swiss Exchange is investing in the future and in
the international growth of Switzerland as a highly successful trading center.
Together with the new co-location service, the system upgrade means that much
higher order volumes (capacity) can be matched and executed in a significantly
shorter time (latency).



This is supported by the efficient and standardised trading protocols, which are also in use at various trading venues. Tests under trading conditions have shown that average round-trip latency is just 37 microseconds.

According to a Swiss Exchange release, each and every participant benefits from this low latency. Participants can put their investment decisions into effect and adjust and reduce their investment risk even faster. Rapid trading, and market data that is distributed with equally low latency, are also key to participants investing or market-making in ETFs, ETPs or structured products. The latest enhancements allow price movements in
underlyings to be identified more quickly, and the corresponding investment and
market-making decisions to be executed more effectively, says the exchange.
