Eurex Group has reported its volumes for the month ending December 2015, which jumped notably higher MoM when weighed against November 2015, according to a Eurex statement.
Just last month, the narrative was completely inverted, with Eurex underpinned by sagging volumes across the entire spectrum of its business. The exchange’s ADV in November fell -2.6% MoM from October, despite an upbeat performance overall compared to 2014.
Eurex’s average daily volume (ADV) during December 2015 came in at 9.9 million contracts, which corresponds to an ascension of 30.6% MoM from just 7.6 million contracts in November 2015. Across a yearly timeframe however, Eurex’s December 2015 ADV also notched a growth of 7.6% YoY from just 9.2 million contracts in December 2014.
The latest figures effectively snap a consecutive monthly decline across volumes at Eurex Exchange, with December 2015 representing a rebound in ADV growth.
