September saw US markets outperform their European and Asian counterparts
The Intercontinental Exchange said its
trading volume increased more than a tenth last month,
underlining a trend that saw the main US markets outperform
their counterparts in Europe and Asia where the Singapore
Exchange saw volumes fall.
ICE reported on Thursday an 11% rise in
the average daily commodities volumes to just shy of 3 million
contracts for September and a 12% increase in financial
derivatives volumes to 2.3 million contracts per day. A notable
exception to the positive results were single stock equities,
where volumes declined 36% to 140,000 lots per day, and power
derivatives, where daily volumes dropped 14% to 104,000
contracts per day.
