CME Group released the monthly statistics for January 2022. The Average Daily Volume (ADV) has increased by 28% to 24.6 million contracts.

According to the official figures, the equity Index ADV increased by 56%. The micro E-mini futures contributed to the volume increase. The micro E-mini Nasdaq100 futures reached ADV of 1,773,105 contracts.

E-mini S&P 500 futures reached ADV of 1,462,837 contracts, E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures ADV of 270,420 contracts and Micro E-mini Russell 2000 futures ADV of 233,529 contracts.

The volatility in US indices have increased since the beginning of the year. When the market is volatile the volumes tend to increase. The Fed is expecting to hike rates in March 2022, which may maintain the current volatility.
