Sygnum trading desk update: derivative trading volumes up 500%

Sygnum has seen a significant increase in our business volume across all our trading products. Dominic Lohberger, Sygnum’s Head of Trading, gives an update on this growth, our improved platform and the markets.

 500% increase of derivatives trading volumes

Sygnum’s crypto derivatives trading volume has increased by 500 percent compared to the same period last year.

“We are going to invest quite substantially over the coming months into our derivatives offering to make it even more self-serviced and easily accessible to our clients,” says Dominic Lohberger.

Twice the crypto spot trading volume

Across our crypto spot trading business, we have seen an increase of more than 100 percent compared to the same period last year.

“Some of that is fuelled by the heighted volatility in the first quarter, most notably driven by the Bitcoin spot ETF approvals but also the Bitcoin halving” says Dominic Lohberger.

Improved Sygnum trading platform

Over the last 12 months, we have invested heavily into further improving our trading infrastructure, culminating in our recent launch of a completely redesigned trading platform.

“Our clients now benefit from even tighter spreads, lower minimum trade sizes and a completely overhauled user experience on our trading platform,” says Dominic Lohberger.

Trading outlook

Dominic Lohberger highlights strong interest for both fixed income instruments and delta-neutral derivatives strategies such as the “basis trade”.

“In particular on Ether where we see clients positioning for a steepening of the yield curve in anticipation of the upcoming launch of the Ether ETFs,” he says.

“One trend we have witnessed over the last weeks and that we expect to continue into summer is the strong correlation with global macro events.”
