The JSE set a new trading record of 119 548 trades on Thursday March 20, the exchange reported on Tuesday.
This follows what it terms “an exceptionally successful” futures close-out on Thursday, which contributed to the record trading.
“Once again, this reaffirms our position as the number one market for single stock futures in the world,” said Russell Loubser, CEO of the JSE Ltd.
“As a result of this new record, it was also a very successful and profitable week for the company operating the exchange, the JSE Ltd.”
The new record breaks the previous one of just under 100 000 trades. — I-Net Bridge
