January 2014 was the busiest January month for the derivatives market on Oslo Børs since 2008, measured in number of contracts.

The strong growth in derivatives trading reflects increased activity in trading in equity instruments (see Good growth in trading volume on Oslo Børs). Big price movements –greater volatility – in the underlying instruments also played a role in the increase in derivatives trading.
