Markets Overview

Borsa Istanbul saw its strong June rally snapped after reporting just $322.6 billion in July 2015, down -1.85% MoM from $329 billion in June 2015. While the figure was unable to overtake last month’s, the robust trading volume across fixed income markets represents the third highest total in 2015 at the exchange.

Alternatively, equities at Borsa Istanbul have seen a downward decline since the start of the 2015 year, with July being no exception. Equities markets recorded only $27.5 billion in July 2015 by volume, which dropped -14.0% MoM from $32 billion in June 2015. The latest figure is sitting roughly -34.5% below a peak of $42 billion in equities markets trading, set back in January.

Finally, derivatives trading has also been unable to mount to any sort of comeback, underpinned by a weakness seen in the rest of Borsa Istanbul’s markets. July 2015’s $15.4 billion figure constitutes a loss of -19.8% MoM from $19.2 billion marked in June 2015.
