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. 3,450,988 trades were made in stocks, warrants and options among Nordnet’s customers in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland during January. That corresponds to 164,333 trades on average per day.

–   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.

 

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.
