European Equities – Market Microstructure Survey Q3 2020

It hasn’t been a good quarter for the European Equity Market. In nearly every country, we’ve seen record lows for volumes throughout the summer. August delivered the slowest month for trading since the MiFID2 era began in January 2018 and the pattern persisted into September. Although 2020 remains ahead of 2019 in terms of daily turnover, the lead has diminished substantially from 34% in Q1 to 11% in Q3 and may evaporate completely in Q4.
