The cash markets of Deutsche Börse, a Germany-based exchange organization, shrank further by -17% in July to €120.2 billion.

Year-over-year (YoY), the markets contracted by -16% from its €143 billion posting in July 2021.

These details are contained in the July cash market trading volumes data published by Deutsche Börse on Monday.

This recent shrinkage in the cash markets’ turnover started in May.

In May, the Deutsche Börse cash markets had climbed 10% month-on-month (MoM) to €161.6 billion only to drop by -11% to €144.1 billion in June.

The continued decline in July was reflected in the turnover of the trading venues that make up the cash markets.

Deeper Falls at the Trading Venues

Xetra is Europe's leading trading venue and reference market for German blue chips, equities and exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

In June, Xetra accounted for €123.9 billion of Deutsche Börse cash markets’ turnover, dropping from its €138.1 billion posting in May.
