During the month, total average daily volumes (ADV) of its futures and options products was 3,223,927 contracts, 3% below the same period last year, but 8.5% above August’s figures. Volume gains were seen in its oil, energy, and financials product line, with only the agriculture unit experiencing month over month declines. In FX, ADV there were 36,863 contracts, an 8.1% month over month increase, and 9% above the same period last year.
