German institutional trading network Deutsche Börse Group has reported its monthly tranche of order book turnover statistics across all asset classes for September 2016, which snapped a recent MoM downtrend, pivoting off its lowest volumes of 2016, according to a Deutsche Börse statement.
The last few months of volumes reports were characterized by an almost unimpeded downtrend with the exception of an episodic spike in its trading volumes during June 2016 due to Brexit-induced volatility. The latest statistics justified a figure of $121.7 billion (€109.1 billion) across all its cash markets, corresponding to a jump of 16.9% MoM from $104.1 billion (€93.3 billion) in August 2016.
