The latest statistics snap a recent decline seen last month, which saw Deutsche Börse incur nearly a double-digit drop in its total volumes, due in large part to a lack of volatility. November 2016 was a different story entirely however, with several global market impetuses and the US election contributing to a staunch uptick in volatility. The group reported $132.2 billion (€124.7 billion) across all its cash markets in November 2016, corresponding to a rise of 26.3% MoM from $104.6 billion (€98.7 billion) in October 2016.
