– May started off with a bullish market, which declined rapidly at the end of the month. Contributing factors were the political crisis in Italy as well as uncertainty about trade agreements and customs, which reduced the willingness to take risk. Nordic stock exchanges generally performed well, with Stockholm as the only exception, and the trading activity of the private partners is on the same level as the month before, 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.
