Number of trades by Nordnet’s customers in March

In March, 1,948,346 trades were made in stocks, warrants and options among Nordnet’s customers in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. That corresponds to 95,041 trades on average per day.  

-   Continued pressure on the stock markets led to fewer trades by private investors in March, compared to earlier this year. An increasing concern for inflation and rising interest rates, in combination with US actions about increased tariffs and increased risk for an international trade war, has characterized the month and gave a negative sentiment, said Johan Tidestad, Head of Communications at Nordnet.

Table: Nordnet’s total trades on all exchanges and market places for all customers, and average number of trades per day. Average number of trades per day is calculated as total trades divided by the number of days the Swedish exchanges are open.
