The SMI rose significantly in May 2024, climbing by 6.6% to reach 12,000.9 points at the end of the month – its highest level since early May 2022. YTD, the SMI is up 7.8%. Trading turnover also developed very favourably in May. At around CHF 105.6 bn, the increase was 14.7% compared to April 2024 and 20.5% compared to May 2023. Trading transactions show a different picture: around 11% fewer transactions were carried out than in the previous month. Since the beginning of the year, 20.6 mn trades were carried out, slightly down by 2% compared to the first five months of 2023.

In ETFs, the number of transactions continues to develop positively, with a YOY increase of 27% to over 900,000 transactions since January. This is supported by a lively listing activity, with 110 new issues in the first five months of the year compared to 150 new products in the entire 2023. The number of tradable ETFs has thus risen to 1,772. 

Trading turnover in structured products remained at a low level compared to the previous year, although the positive listing activity continued in this area. We recorded over 47,000 new product listings in the first five months of the year.
