In money terms, the total trading value of contracts for September averaged $9.4 billion per day, up 16 percent month-over-month from $8.1 billion for August 2020. Compared to last year’s figures, the ADV cash value in September 2020 reflected a rise by 14.0 percent compared to the same month in 2019.
Across the year-to-date (YTD) interval, the total turnover through September 2020 came in at $1.88 trillion, a gain of 32 percent from $1.42 trillion in the same nine-month period a year ago.
