In February, 2,313,237 trades were made in stocks, warrants and options among Nordnet’s customers in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. That corresponds to 115,662 trades on average per day.
– February started with high volatility and extreme activity, triggered by a large number of company reports and investors worrying about rising interest rates. Nordnet set a trading record for a single day in the beginning of the month with over 200,000 trades. The initial rapid decline in the market was replaced by a slow recovery and lower activity, and as a whole, the Nordic stock markets closed around zero, says 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.
