The cash markets of Germany-based exchange organization, Deutsche Börse, improved by 15% month-on-month (MoM) to €113.63 billion in September 2022.

However, on a year-on-year (YoY) basis, the volume dropped -16% from €135.11 billion recorded in September 2021.

These figures are contained in the September 2022 cash market trading volumes published by Deutsche Börse on Tuesday.

The gain recorded in September is a reversal of the months-long shrinkages of the exchange’s cash markets volumes that kicked-off after the 10% growth which was recorded in May.

In June, the cash markets dropped by -11% to €144.1 billion, shrinking further by -17% to €120.2 billion in July.

In August, the volumes continued to slump, sliding -17% to €99.23 billion before returning a 15% gain last month with €113.63 billion in trading volumes.

The German markets operator explained: “The trading volumes of Tradegate Exchange will be published by the company itself with immediate effect and can be found on Tradegate Exchange.

“They are no longer shown in Deutsche Börse Group's cash market statistics, as Tradegate Exchange is no longer consolidated due to changes in the ownership structure.”
