Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), an operator of global exchanges and clearinghouses, released its trading volume metrics on Wednesday for June 2022. The operator noted a surge in its total average daily volume (ADV) of around 13% on a yearly basis and a rise of 3% in its total open interest on a yearly basis.

In other metrics, Brent ADV was up 6% y/y during the period, while total natural gas ADV surged 12% on a yearly basis. Total financials ADV were up 33% y/y, and its open interest was up 12% on a yearly basis. Other ADVs included TTF natural gas, which soared 9%, equity indices surged 26%, and US cash equities increased 16%.

In the second quarter, the total average daily volume jumped 12% on a yearly basis, while total energy ADV rose 3%. In addition, equity options ADV for the period soared by 25%.

“The continued war in Ukraine sparked a reshaping of global energy flows in the second quarter of 2022, a process which will continue to present new risks and uncertainties for investors and consumers of energy. Meanwhile, rising inflation has created an interest rate environment vastly different to what investors have navigated in the years since the financial crisis. Our transparent, accessible futures markets continue to provide critical risk management tools for customers to manage and hedge these risks and uncertainties across asset classes,” Ben Jackson, the President of ICE, commented.
