Low volatility stymies OTC growth

New angles

The rate of growth in outstanding over-the-counter derivatives volumes slowed in the first half of 2005, although overall volumes continued to rise, according to the latest figures released by the Bank for International Settlements (BIS). The total notional value of outstandings stood at $270 trillion on June 30, up 7% from the end of last year.

The equity and commodity derivatives markets both saw significant growth – rising by 17% to $5.1 trillion and $7.1 trillion respectively.
