TMX Group Limited, operator of the Toronto Stock Exchange and another four marketplaces – TSX Venture Exchange, Alpha, Montreal Exchange (MX) and NGX – has reported its aggregated trading metrics for November 2017, which were largely positive, helping stage a rebound off the weak performance of the prior month.
During the month of November 2017, TMX and all of its marketplaces reported an average daily volume (ADV) of 659.2 million contracts, which represents a massive increase over a monthly timeframe, as volumes jumped 28.4 percent month-on-month from 521.8 million back in October 2017. Additionally, the latest figures constitute a rise of 6.3 percent year-on-year in terms of volumes from 619.9 million in November 2016.
