The rebound from October’s striking low is solidifying a good year for the company

The InterContinental Exchange (NYSE:ICE) has released contract volume numbers for the last month of 2013. The company has recorded a year on year drop of 12% announcing 29,110 contracts traded per day in December. The number comes to close an otherwise positive year with full year average daily volumes totaling 36,013 contracts compared to 29,443 back in 2012.

The figures released today are higher by a solid 20% over November’s 24,109 contracts and are confirming a reversal from the dismal October numbers that marked a low of 20,440 contracts which at the time was a whopping 45% lower than September.
