In 2018, the volume traded in the Panamanian Stock Exchange totaled $6.100 million, 15% more than the data reported in 2017, mainly because of the behavior of the primary market.

The increase in the volume traded in 2018 represents a recovery in the stock market, since in 2017 the stock market activity of the Panama Stock Exchange (BVP) reported a 28% decrease compared to 2016.

Prensa.com reviews that "... The primary market, i.e. issues launched for the first time, was the great promoter of stock market activity, with a 37.4% growth, while the secondary market fell by 12.9% compared to 2017."

Chamber of Capital Markets explained that "... the volume traded last year is good. There is a greater volume of negotiation with El Salvador and the importance of connectivity with other remote operators is being noted."

Regarding the transformations in the BVP, last week the institution reported that it successfully implemented its new electronic negotiation system, which operates with Nasdaq Matching Engine technology. See "Electronic Stock Exchange Negotiations."
