added: 2010-02-16

The average daily value traded across London Stock Exchange Group’s equity markets during January increased 14 per cent year on year to £7.1 billion (€8.0 billion). The average daily number of trades was 831,892, six per cent lower than January 2009.

Increased trading activity in the Italian equity market and higher FTSE MIB index levels led to 46 per cent year on year growth in the average daily value traded on the Italian equity order book, while the average daily number of trades was up seven per cent.

A number of the Group’s other markets recorded good performances during the month, with trading in MTS and in ETFs and ETCs showing strong growth. On the MTS Cash markets the average daily value traded more than doubled, reaching €11.9 billion (£10.5 billion), a 103 per cent increase on January 2009. The average daily number of trades and the average daily value traded in ETCs and ETFs across the Group grew 85 per cent and 50 per cent respectively.

UK Cash Equities

During January, the total value traded on the UK order book was £83.9 billion (€95 billion) and the total number of trades was 11.1 million.

The average daily value traded on the UK equity order book was £4.2 billion (€4.8 billion), a decrease of three per cent year on year, while the average daily number of trades was down 12 per cent at 553,978.

Italian Cash Equities

On the Italian equity order book, the total number of trades was 4.5 million and the total value traded was €50.3 billion (£44.4 billion).

The average daily number of trades in Italian equities was 227,319, up seven per cent on the same month last year. The average daily value traded during the month also grew, reaching €2.5 billion (£2.2 billion), a 46 per cent increase on last year.

International Cash Equities

The average daily value traded in international stocks on the Group’s equity order books was up 116 per cent year on year, totalling £679 million (€769 million), while the average daily number of trades was 50,594, up 36 per cent on last January.

ETFs and ETCs

Trading in ETFs and ETCs during the month was strong, with the average daily number of trades up 85 per cent year on year, totalling 16,773. The average daily value traded was up by 50 per cent to £419 million (€474 million). January was the 2nd highest month of all time for both trades and turnover.

Derivatives

The average daily number of contracts traded on the Group’s derivatives markets, EDX London and IDEM, was down 25 per cent on January 2009, at 267,742. The average daily value traded on IDEM was up 41 per cent at €2.9 billion (£2.5billion), while the daily number of contracts traded was down seven per cent at 117,798. On EDX, the end of the linked exchange agreement with Nasdaq OMX and the consequent stoppage of trading in linked Swedish index products have significantly affected daily notional value traded and number of contracts traded.

Fixed income

Trading on the MTS Cash markets remained strong, with the average daily value traded during the month up by 103 per cent year on year at €11.9 billion (£10.5 billion), while on the MTS Repo market, the average term adjusted daily value traded increased by 73 per cent year on year to €214.3 billion (£189.2 billion).
