European share trading volumes surge on Friday - Bats Europe
LONDON, June 24 (Reuters) - Pan-European equity trading volume surged to 90.5 billion euros ($100 billion) by 1345 GMT on Friday, nearly double the recent full-day trading average, following a vote by Britons to leave the European Union, according to data compiled by Bats Europe.
Turnover on Britain's blue-chip FTSE 100 index hit 20.5 billion euros, against a daily average of around 10 billion euros, according to the largest European stock exchange by value of shares traded.
The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index was down more than 5 percent in afternoon trading.
