Trading volume increased steadily through 2008 and has recovered most of the losses due to the 2008 financial crisis in 2011. This budget assumes continued growth at the rate seen from 2009-2011. The increase in volume traded in the last year (10 percent) reflects increased activity of high-frequency traders, without a commensurate increase in notional value (see Notional Value of Futures/Option Open Contracts).
