Intercontinental Exchange Reports ICE And NYSE May Volume

Stocks in this article: ICE

Intercontinental Exchange, Inc. (NYSE: ICE), the leading global network of exchanges and clearing houses, today reported exchange traded volumes for May 2014.

ICE’s May average daily volume (ADV) was 5.4 million contracts, a decrease of 15% compared to May 2013.

  • Commodity futures and options ADV decreased 23% in May due primarily to continued low price volatility across most energy products.
  • Financial futures and options ADV decreased 9% in May due primarily to the low interest rate environment in Europe. This was partially offset by a 23% increase in equity derivatives ADV year to year, including a 32% increase in Liffe single stock futures.
  • NYSE cash equities ADV decreased 13% and Euronext cash equities ADV was flat compared to the prior May. NYSE equity options volume decreased 23% year to year.
