Finally, MOEX’s derivatives market volumes did build on a strong January performance by catapulting higher in February 2016, reporting a figure of RUB 13.4 trillion for the month – this corresponded to a rise of 26.4% MoM from RUB 10.6 trillion in January 2016. February 2016’s turnover is also higher than the same period in 2015, having registered a climb of 103.0% YoY from just RUB 6.6 trillion in February 2015.
