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 October 2017. The latest metrics were largely mixed, as volatility helped it bounce off 2017 lows in the prior month.
During the month of October 2017, TMX and all of its marketplaces reported an average daily volume (ADV) of 513.2 million contracts, which represents a decrease over a monthly timeframe, as volumes fell 1.6 percent month-on-month from 521.8 million back in September 2017. Additionally, the latest figures constitute a loss of 8.7 percent year-on-year in terms of volumes from 561.9 million in October 2016.
