Eurex Group Reports Highest Yearly Volumes During March

Eurex's volumes are back on track in March, striking 2016 highs.

Eurex Group has released its monthly volumes for March 2016, showing a slight rebound from last month though ultimately failing to break out of a tight consolidation of volumes in the New Year, according to a Eurex statement.

Back in February, Eurex saw a generally weak performance across its figures, having seen an average daily volume (ADV) of just 9.8 million contracts – this was reflective of a -3.9% MoM decline from January 2016, underpinning the exchange with uneven volumes so far this year.

In March 2016 however, the Eurex managed to report upbeat figures however, with the exchange disclosing an ADV of 10.5 million contracts, a yearly high in 2016, and a 7.1% MoM gain from 9.8 million contracts in the month prior. Across a yearly timetable, Eurex’s March 2016 ADV also was to secure a rise of 9.4% YoY from just 9.6 million contracts in March 2015.

Equity Index Strong Performance

Eurex’s leading installment of equity index derivatives (combining both equity options and single stock futures) saw a healthy rise to 92.5 million contracts in March 2016 – this was good for a 14.6% boost MoM from 80.7 million contracts in February 2016, its largest figure in 2016. Furthermore, March 2016’s volumes also showed a sustained increase of 16.9% YoY from 79.1 million contracts in March 2015.

Interest Rate Derivatives Continue Climb

By extension, Eurex also yielded a solid performance across its interest rate derivatives segment, especially when measured against last month. During March 2016, the group reported a figure of 53.9 million contracts traded, up 26.8% MoM from 42.5 million contracts in February 2016, as well as 5.5% YoY from 51.1 million contracts in March 2015.
