July average daily transaction value on the Euronext cash order book stood at EUR7,911 million (+38 per cent compared with July 2014). Activity on ETFs remained dynamic with an average daily transaction value at EUR513 million, up 81 per cent on July 2014.

In July, the average daily volume on equity index derivatives was slightly down at 208,718 contracts (-8 per cent compared with July 2014), and the average daily volume on individual equity derivatives was down at 215,648 contracts (-21 per cent compared with July 2014). The exchange’s effort to develop the retail activity in Amsterdam paid off again this month with a new yearly record volume on the AEX index mini options at 3,175 contracts traded on 15 July.

July 2015 was the most active commodities derivatives month ever, beating the former record of July 2012 with 1,740,834 lots traded.  Activity was up 29 per cent compared with July 2014, with an average daily volume of 75,688 contracts. This brings the year-to-date ADV slightly above 56,300 contracts (+21 per cent compared with2014 YTD). Adverse weather conditions in Western Europe, in the Midwest Plains and in Canada resulted in higher volatility for grains early on in the month.

These include two large capitalisations, LafargeHolcim on Euronext Paris and Flow Traders on Euronext Amsterdam, as well as five EnterNext SMEs that altogether raised EUR618 million.
