TMX Group Limited, operator of the Toronto Stock Exchange, TSX Venture Exchange, TMX Select, Alpha, Montreal Exchange (MX) and NGX, has reported its aggregated trading metrics for August 2017. The latest figures reflected a bounce off 2017 lows but were still firmly entrenched in the year-over-year downtrend seen since the beginning of the year.
During the month of August 2017, TMX and all of its marketplaces reported an average daily volume (ADV) of 420.3 million contracts, which represents a move higher over a monthly timeframe, as volumes rose 2.3 percent month-on-month from 411.0 million back in July 2017.
