Marco Bianchi is Senior Vice President and Head of Business Development at NYSE Liffe U.S., the U.S. futures exchange of NYSE Euronext.
The last few weeks have been extraordinary, with record volatility and market activity that looked nothing like a typical month of August. NYSE Liffe US has seen many active trading days across products and asset classes since early August, as many of our followers via Twitter (http://twitter.com/#!/nyseliffeus) and this blog would undoubtedly be aware. So what’s really new? Well…we are particularly excited that our clients have recognized the value offered by our liquid and fast growing Eurodollar futures market. We know that’s the case because our daily market share of the Eurodollar futures market has been growing, thanks to new participants entering the market and customers further expanding their positions traded on NYSE Liffe US and cleared at NYPC.
Above you'll see a quick chart showing the latest trends, including the recent high of 4.3% from yesterday’s trading session. Watch this space for more news on market share over the next few weeks….
