Data presentation - Summary description

The Securities trading statistics cover the trading of debt, equity and other tradable securities on stock exchanges.

This dataset contains information on the number of participants, listed securities and executed trades. In addition, the market capitalisation and value of executed trades are available.

A participant in a securities exchange is a legal entity that can submit (buy and sell) orders to the exchange on its own behalf or on behalf of its customers. Domestic participants are those located in the same country as the securities exchange.

Market capitalisation of listed companies is the total market value of a company, i.e. the total number of a company’s shares outstanding multiplied by the current market price per share.

In securities trading statistics each executed trade is counted once, regardless of whether the transaction has been executed on an order-driven or quote-driven system. Unsecured derivatives transactions and repo transactions are not included.
