In April, the trend from the first quarter continues and trading volume maintains a high level. The leading trading platform for Austrian shares records equity trading volumes of EUR 6.25 billion in April 2021. Compared to the previous year, this represents a substantial increase of 21.6% (April 2020: EUR 5.14 billion).
Year-to-date the trading members of the Vienna Stock Exchange generated a turnover of EUR 26.74 billion. This equals almost as much turnover as in the same period in 2020 (EUR 26.88 billion), which was heavily impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
