US Futures Market Review: Q3-2017
TABB Group Futures Market Review analyzes trends in the futures and options on futures markets in the US as well as brief global overview. In addition, we provide details on swap and volatility futures contracts. Finally, we provide a comprehensive ranking of the top twenty-five Futures Commissions Merchants (“FCMs”) as determined by customer segregated balances held on their books.
Despite record low volatility across many products, volumes for US futures and options-on-futures are projected to surpass the record volumes set in 2016. Investors continue to look for alternative ways to manage their risk or in some cases are seeking less expensive exposure to new markets.
