August US Equity Trading Volume Plunges To Lowest In 16 Years

Earlier we showed one indicator of the US investor’s (should they exist anymore) loss of interest [4] in the Federal-Reserve-sponsored equity market – i.e. CNBC ratings at 20-year lows. In the interest of being more fair-and-balanced we present anther perspective… US equity trading volume in August of 2013 is the lowest on average in 16 years… and all-time highs, middle-east war, taper, weak macro, housing un-recovery, German elections, Asian FX crisis will do little to improve that risk-appetite for the retiring boomer army.
