Amsterdam, Brussels, Lisbon, London and Paris – 5 July 2017 – Euronext, the leading pan-European exchange in the Eurozone, today announced trading volumes for June 2017.
- The June 2017 average daily transaction value on the Euronext cash order book stood at €8,242 million, relatively stable (-1.2%) compared to June 2016 and down -2.7% from the previous month. The average daily transaction value on ETFs was €414 million, down -39.4% compared to June 2016 and down-24.5% from the previous month. Our ETF offering increased this month with 822 listings at the end of June compared to 790 end of 2016.
- The average daily volume on equity index derivatives reached 247,489 contracts in June 2017, up +1.1% compared to June 2016 and up +11% from the previous month. The average daily volume on individual equity derivatives reached 464,604 contracts in June 2017, up 84.4% compared to June 2016 and up +78.5% from the previous month. These figures include a total of 5.6 million equity and index option contracts, resulting from the planned non-recurring migration of open interest from TOM to Euronext, which took place at marginal rates due to the exceptional circumstances of the TOM closure.
- In June 2017, the average daily volume on commodities derivatives reached 57,070 contracts, up +1.6% compared to June 2016 and up +63.3% from the previous month. The heatwave that hit France late June coupled with spring wheat problems in the U.S. has increased uncertainties on the wheat harvest this year which translated into a significant price and volatility increase.
- On a year-to-date basis, the overall average daily volume on Euronext derivatives stands at 572,757 contracts (+8.4% compared to end of June 2016) and the open interest was up at 15,517,641 contracts (+5.5% compared to end of June 2016).
- In June 2017, Euronext had five new listings including ALD with €5.8 billion market capitalisation and 4 SMEs that altogether raised €1.4 million. In addition, €6.1 billion were raised on Euronext in corporate bonds comprising of Orange with a €584 million issue in Paris, and €7.0 billion of follow-on equity.
 As a result of TOM’s decision to wind down, TOM has coordinated a process which makes its open interest positions accessible via Euronext after closure of TOM. The process of collectively transferring the open interest positions started at the end of May 2017 and was finalised end of June 2017.
