Equity trades were up 15.7 per cent year on year to 103,203 in June, with the value traded up 8.7 per cent to $2.8 billion.

Debt transactions increased in volume by 5.3 per cent to 2778 and 11.3 per cent by value to $84 million.

While trading volumes are up on last year, the total value traded in the year to date is down 15.6 per cent on the same period last year to $17.6b.
