Summary:
  • A slow July globally brought down the average $value traded in all regions, but every region is still up in 2013 compared to the same period in 2012.
  • Asia’s increased $value traded in 2013 is especially dramatic; more on this below.
  • The US is the only region with fewer shares traded this year, but thanks to a 20% rise in the S&P, $value traded is still up.
