– During January, Nordnet’s customers set a new trading record. In total, the private savers made almost 3.5 million transactions during the month. The previous record was from October 2018 and amounted to just over 2.8 million transactions, says Johan Tidestad, Chief Communications Officer at Nordnet.
The Nordic stock exchanges had a mixed development during the month. Denmark increased the most with more than 3 percent, and Norway was the worst in class with minus 2.5 percent.
– The activity of the private savers is often high in January, and this year has continued the good momentum from the end of last year. From the middle of the month, the stock exchange gained new fuel as the reporting season picked up, and the activity has also been boosted by concerns about the corona virus’s impact on society and the economy, says Johan Tidestad, Chief Communications Officer at Nordnet.
