Euronext saw record trading volumes on its markets on 24 August 2015. On cash markets over 550 million orders were managed, surpassing the previous record set in January 2015 by 22 per cent.  

A total of 4,478,154 transactions were completed – another new record and an increase of 16 per cent on the previous highest total set on 9 August 2011. 
In derivatives markets, including commodity markets, 217 million orders were managed, with some 1,515,232 contracts traded, the highest total since 16 December 2014. Euronext’s internal system managed more than 668 million theoretical price updates (more than 2.5 times the normal average daily amount) throughout the day ensuring the best possible investor protection.
Lee Hodgkinson (pictured), Head of Markets and Global Sales, says: “Yesterday was an exceptional day for trading across all Euronext markets and was our most active day since January 2008. Our trading infrastructure and supervisory teams performed exceptionally well to maintain fair and orderly markets in the face of such intense market activity, underlining the benefits to investors of regulated, transparent and centrally cleared markets.”
