In January, 2,483,660 trades were made in stocks, warrants and options among Nordnet’s customers in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. That corresponds to 115,519 trades on average per day.  

–   The Nordic stock markets had a positive start in 2018, with an overall positive sentiment and high activity among the savers.  In the US, stock exchanges rose to new record levels and continued the strong trend from last year. Trading in cannabis shares and crypto currencies have been clear themes throughout the month, and the bitcoin continued its journey south and decreased with 40 percent only in January, 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.
