    Smile in its stock and futures ?

    Taiwan has lifted a long-standing ban on Chinese investment in its stock and futures exchanges, aimed at helping transform the island's market into a regional financial services centre.

    The policy is the latest step by Taiwan's new government to deregulate financial ties with China
    I think it should be 'stocks' rather than 'stock' in above context. Am I right?

    Thanks in advance!

    No, it's called a 'stock exchange', not a 'stocks exchange'. (just like it's called a 'car dealership', not a 'cars dealership'.
    I guess it's called a "futures exchange" because a 'future exchange' could have an unclear meaning.
