Eurex Group has reported its volumes for the month ending August 2015, which secured a healthy growth MoM from the exchange’s figures this past July, according to a Eurex statement.
Eurex’s average daily volume (ADV) during August 2015 came in at 8.8 million contracts, which corresponds to an advance of 3.5% MoM from 8.5 million contracts in July 2015. Across a year timeframe however, Eurex’s August 2015 ADV surged higher by 25.7% YoY from just 7.0 million contracts in August 2014.
Last month, Eurex witnessed a notable downturn in its volumes, with July 2015 incurring a double-digit figure loss of -22.7% MoM across its ADV. The downtrodden results appear to have bottomed out however, with volumes once again pointed upwards from its lowest figures this year.
