(BusinessDesk) The value of trading in NZX debt and equity markets rose 15% in September from a year earlier, ending seven months of decline.

The total value of trades last month was $2.6 billion, underpinned by strength in share trading.

New Zealand's capital markets showed increasing signs of life, with the total market capitalisation for stocks rising 14% to $63.5 billion, about 31% of gross domestic product, from the same month a year earlier.

The market cap for the debt market fell 2% to $15.2 billion, or 7.4% of GDP.
