Introducing the ETD Tracker:
This month FIA is releasing the March data on futures and options trading in two formats: the established spreadsheet format and a new format called the FIA ETD Tracker. The ETD Tracker consists of interactive visualizations on the FIA website that allow users to view data on volume and open interest, with filters based on year and month, region and jurisdiction, asset group and type of product. The ETD Tracker also includes visualizations that rank exchanges by total volume in the latest month and year to date as well as open interest in the latest month.

Highlights from March 2023:
Worldwide volume of exchange-traded derivatives reached 10.57 billion contracts in March, the highest level ever recorded. This was up 24.9% from February 2023 and up 54.2% from March 2022.
Options continue to gain in popularity. Global trading of options reached 7.7 billion contracts in March, up by more than 83% from last year, with most of that trading taking place in the Asia-Pacific region. Global trading of futures reached 2.86 billion contracts in March, up 8% from the same month last year.
On a year-to-date basis, volume in the first three months of the year was 27.54 billion contracts, up 43.8% from the first three months of 2022. The majority of that increase came from equity index contracts.
Total options volume for the year so far was 20.32 billion contracts, up 73% from the previous year. Total futures volume was 7.21 billion contracts in 2023 so far, down 2.6% from 2022.
Total open interest at the end of March was 1.17 billion contracts. The March total was up 3.2% from February 2023 and up 6.2% from a year ago.
