CME Group reports international ADV of 5.1 million contracts in Q2 2021

Derivatives marketplace CME Group revealed its financial results for Q2 of 2021.

The report details international average daily volume (ADV) reached 5.1 million contracts in Q2 2021. Compared to the same period last year, these figures show a 6% rise.

The company noted that outside North America, these numbers were driven by global growth in Agricultural and Interest Rate products, which registered 30% and 40 % increase, respectively. Agricultural products hit record quarterly volumes in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), as well as Asia Pacific and Latin America.
