German institutional trading network Deutsche Börse Group has released its monthly order book turnover across all asset classes for August 2016, having continued a MoM downtrend en route to its lowest volumes year to date, according to a Deutsche Börse statement.
Despite an episodic spike in its trading volumes during June 2016 due to Brexit-induced volatility, a downtrend has continued seemingly unabated since March 2016 across Deutsche Börse’s turnover. The latest figures came in at just $104.4 billion (€93.3 billion) across all its cash markets, corresponding to a fall of -7.4% MoM from $112.8 billion (€100.8 billion) in July 2016.
