We reached our third highest quarterly average daily volume on record in Q2, and, in particular, our SOFR futures and options contracts reached new records in both volume and open interest, driven by the industry’s accelerating transition away from USD LIBOR.

Additionally, market users increasingly turned to our micro and E-mini contracts to customize their trading strategies. Moving forward, we will remain focused on providing our clients with the tools they need to manage risk amid central bank tightening, historic inflation and other challenging market conditions.
