Date 05/04/2001

In March the number of traded contracts rose by 150,3% to reach a monthly total of 1,417,577. This staggering performance is largely due to the revival of the mini® BEL20® contract.

This increase was also supported by a 101,6 % increase in the volume of the BEL20® option contract to 105.324 contracts traded.

The volume of the equity options followed this renewed interest with a 19.7% increase. The most succesful equity options were Dexia (+390%) and KBC (309.5%) followed by UCB (+174.5%) and Real Software (+113.6%).
