Tabb found US options trading slowed 2.9% last year despite increased volatility

year despite increased volatility, signalling the market may

In its latest research, Tabb Group notes
total options volumes in 2015 reached 4.14 billion contracts,
down 2.9% on 2014. This came despite the re-emergence of
volatility, which reached its highest levels since 2011 during
the height of the European debt crisis.
