In April, 1,983,739 trades were made in stocks, warrants and options among Nordnet’s customers in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. That corresponds to 101,730 trades on average per day.
– April was a strong month for equities, and a counter reaction to the negative development the month before. The markets were favored by less focus on global politics and more interest in quarterly reports, where the figures overall were better than expected. Three out of four Nordic stock exchanges rose in April, with Copenhagen being the only stock market on minus. Oslo was best in the class and went up by almost eight percent, fueled by rising oil prices, said Johan Tidestad, Head of Communications at Nordnet.
Table: Nordnet’s total trades on all exchanges and market places for all customers, and average number of trades per day. Average number of trades per day is calculated as total trades divided by the number of days the Swedish exchanges are open.
