Stock & Commodity Exchanges in the US
The Stock and Commodity Exchanges industry has remained a vital part of the Finance and Insurance sector, especially as trade volumes have increased over the five years to 2019. This growth has enabled industry operators to generate more in transaction and clearing fees, which is the largest source of revenue for stock and commodity exchanges. Industry operators have also pursued aggressive merger and acquisition activity. Over the five years to 2024, increased trade volume is forecast to raise clearing and transaction fees, while growing corporate profit is anticipated to increase demand for the provision of market data. However, regulatory oversight may continue to grow, with recent attention to dark pools and over-the-counter markets potentially curtailing trade volume.
