ASX Data Insights 2022

Explore some key indicators of activity in the Australian financial market

The importance of comprehensive and high quality financial markets data

Growth in the number of new products being introduced into Australian financial markets over recent years has driven a corresponding increase in listings and trading activity. This means that in a single day, ASX disseminates large amount of data to market professionals and data vendors - from bids, offers and volumes to essential reference data and the very latest company news.

By connecting to the ASX via the ALC, Australia’s only purpose built finance data centre or ASX Net, our secure network connectivity service, access to this data is now faster than ever. ASX Information Services delivers comprehensive, high quality financial markets data straight from the source.

Our data insights snapshot examines a number of key indicators of financial market activity over time and to the most recent reporting period. Explore the data and use the arrows to scroll through the insights.

Increasing daily transactions and trade value for ASX equities

Over the past 6 years, the number of daily equity transactions on the ASX has grown by almost 91%, with an average of 1.6 million trades recorded every day in 2021.

In the corresponding period, the overall value of equity trades per day has increased by almost 41%. In 2021, the average value of all trades was over $6.6 bn per day.

2020 saw an unprecedented increase in trading activity spurred by the extraordinary impact of Covid-19.
