13 Nov 2012

NEW YORK (Commodity Online): NYSE Euronext (NYX) today announced trading volumes for its global derivatives and cash equities exchanges for October 2012 . The industry decision to close the U.S. markets for two trading days due to Hurricane Sandy resulted in a 9% decrease in the number of trading days in October 2012 for NYSE Euronext’s U.S. cash equity and equity options markets.


The closure of these markets also impacted trading on NYSE Euronext’s European derivatives and European cash trading venues, which remained open. European derivatives and European cash average daily trading volumes declined 44% and 41%, respectively, during the closure of the U.S. markets with some residual impact after the markets reopened. October 2011 trading volumes benefited from higher levels of market volatility driven by the sovereign debt crisis in Europe and the debt ceiling issue in the U.S.
