Data shows weakness in energy volumes

Turnover from ICE’s flagship energy contracts weakened to fresh lows in June, according to data released today, as the volatility eased.

For the month ending June 2022, the owner of the New York Stock Exchange saw its energy volume average 2.79 million contracts per day, which represents a zero change month-on-month. Across a yearly interval, the latest figures were lower by 2 percent from 2.85 million contracts per day in June 2021.

In terms of ICE’s total commodities volume, the figure was also mixed in its overall performance, amounting to an average of 3.2 million contracts per day in June 2022, which is up 3 percent vs. 3.14 million for the month prior. The group’s commodities activity was skewed to downside year-on-year when weighed against 3.26 million contracts reported back in June 2021.

Overall, ICE’s aggregated volumes were characterized by positive results across both the monthly and yearly intervals while volumes were broadly up in June across most business segments.

During the reported month, ICE’s June average daily volume (ADV) for futures and options business was reported at 6.27 million contracts per day, which corresponded to a change of 15 percent month-over-month from 5.47 million per day in May 2022.
