JPX Derivatives Explosion

In the domestic stock market, trading increased on last year but less dramatically. JPX’s report indicates that this year, average daily trading in domestic stocks was around ¥3.33 trillion ($29 billion).

For October of 2017, the exchange operator reported an average daily trading volume in domestic stocks of ¥3.11 trillion ($28 billion). Having the mathematically astute readership that we do here at Finance Magnates, you probably already know that means this year saw a seven percent increase on the last.

In the derivatives markets, things were also very positive for JPX. The firm reported a total trading volume of ¥305 trillion ($2.7 trillion) for October of this year.

That was a huge, 46.6 percent increase on last October. In its report for October of 2017, JPX reported a total derivatives trading volume of ¥208 trillion ($1.84 trillion).
