Chart o’ the Day: ETF Trading Volumes

No one should be surprised any longer that ETF trading volumes spike in times of volatility – for more and more investors, ETFs have become the “true market” – as controversial as this premise is.

This is a trend we’ve seen before. When headline-making news triggers a sudden shift in investor sentiment and market volatility jumps, it has been followed by elevated ETF trading volumes in absolute dollar terms and also in proportion to total US equity market trading volumes. In June, ETFs accounted for 31% of the dollar value of all trading volume in US equity markets, up from 20-25% in recent months.
