This month’s 4.6% S&P rise has failed to offset the big decline in volume. Some 6.85B shares worth $209.6B have changed hands each day this year, down 16% and 12% Y/Y respectively, according to Bloomberg data. Trading is declining faster on the biggest venues, as NYSE trading slumped to its lowest since 1999, with the 50-day average reaching 847.5M shares last week.
