Stock market operator ASX Limited has posted a 2018-17 interim net profit of $A230.5m, which is 5.1 per cent higher than previously. The half-year was characterised by a low level of market volatility, and ASX CEO Dominic Stevens says the volatility experienced so far in 2018 is likely to persist for 3-4 months. He adds that a certain amount of volatility can boost the earnings of stock exchange and futures market operators like the ASX, although he cautions that too much volatility can affect the IPO market.
