There were also marked increases in the CHF bonds segment: trading turnover climbed by 51.2% to CHF 13.0 billion, while the number of trades rose by 27.8% to 35,611. In the largest segment, equities including funds + ETPs, at 4,483,977 the number of trades was up by 32.6% on the previous month, while turnover rose by 35.3% to CHF 98.1 billion.

30 new CHF bond issues (+3.4%) and 3,799 new structured products and warrants (+54.0%) were admitted to trading in November. In all, this means that 250 new CHF bonds (-1.6%) and 33,374 new structured products and warrants (-15.9%) have been listed since the start of the year.

Total trading turnover in 2016 has so far failed to match that of the previous year, down 8.0% at CHF 1,171.6 billion. While turnover has risen in the ETFs and non-CHF bonds segments, the overall decline is predominantly due to the lower turnover in the equities including funds + ETPs (-6.1%), CHF bonds (-25.2%) and structured products and warrants (-41.0%) segments. Nevertheless, the average daily trading turnover has come in at CHF 5.0 billion.
