Trading in futures and options has surged in the past two months.
In October the CME Group reached a
record high in single-day volume with almost 40 million
contracts traded across all asset classes, surpassing the
previous record by 50 percent. A new daily volume record in
volatility derivatives was noted on Eurex, and the CBOE
Futures Exchange noted the
busiest week in history. Activity is predicted to
continue upwards as the market increasingly turns to
exchange-traded products instead of OTC derivatives.
High volumes and volatility present a mix of challenges and opportunities. Success is closely correlated to the performance of your trading system, where a powerful quoting framework is key.
