Combined market would allow investors to trade a wide variety of products

TOKYO -- Japan Exchange Group and the Tokyo Commodity Exchange are eyeing an integration that would consolidate securities and commodities futures trading, allowing the combined unit to join the ranks of the world's leading marketplaces.

JPX CEO Akira Kiyota and Tocom President Takamichi Hamada will meet in Osaka on Wednesday and are expected to launch regular talks toward the unification. A combined marketplace would integrate the trading of stocks and commodities futures like energy and grain under one roof.
