Stock & Commodity Exchanges in the US

The role of the Stock and Commodity Exchanges industry has remained a vital part of the financial sector, especially as trade volumes have increased over the five years to 2017. With total trade volumes increasing industry operators can generate more in transaction and clearing fees, which is the largest source of revenue for stock and commodity exchanges. Over the five years to 2022, industry revenue is forecast to increase. Increased trade volume is expected to raise clearing and transaction fees, while growing corporate profit is anticipated to increase demand for the provision of market data. However, regulatory trends initiated after the sub-prime crisis could continue, as recent attention to dark pools and over-the-counter markets could curtail trade volume.

This industry is composed of financial intermediaries that provide physical trading floors or electronic marketplaces where buyers and sellers arrange trades in securities, commodities and related contracts.
