Sharp declines last month in the price of US government debt triggered a large increase in fixed income trading volumes, according to new data that highlight the vigour of the recent sell-off in the bond market.

Average daily trading volume in US government bonds jumped 24.7 per cent in September from the same month in 2017 to $71.7bn, according to Tradeweb, a large venue for bond dealings.
