DGCX records highest average daily volumes

The best performing asset class in September was the Indian Rupee (INR) product suite


Dubai: Total volumes on the Dubai Gold & Commodities Exchange (DGCX) this year hit 17,255,556 contracts at the end of September, with yearly Average Daily Volumes (ADV) at their highest ever, reaching 89,873 contracts per day.

The best performing asset class in September was the Indian Rupee (INR) product suite, which saw Rupee Mini Futures record its 2nd highest monthly Average Open Interest (AOI) of 110,020 contracts, and the Indian Rupee Quanto, which has traded 3,160,471 contracts year-to-date (Y-T-D), up 51% from 2017.

Trading in September was also underpinned by the Indian Single Stock Futures (SSF) and Shanghai Gold Futures (DSGC), which registered Y-T-D voume growth of 195% and 101% respectively.

Les Male, CEO of DGCX, commented:“The rising popularity of INR trading this month follows the continued depreciation of the rupee, which has seen investors turn to more regulated markets to hedge their exposure to the US dollar. The robust performance of our Rupee Mini Futures in particular is of note, with its increasing liquidity and depth of market, it is testament to the smaller sized contract’s ability to enable retail remitters, individual investors and SMEs to cost-effectively manage their currency risk.”

The DGCX is participating in the upcoming World Investor Week 2018 (WIW) from the 1st to the 7th October, 2018. WIW is a global campaign promoted by the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) to raise awareness about the importance of investor education and protection and highlight the various initiatives of securities regulators in these two critical areas. DGCX will be participating in conjunction with the Securities and Commodities Authority (SCA) on numerous events throughout the week.
