During turbulent times, stocks are seen as a riskier investment. This past year, the number of people involved in stock market trading declined compared to previous years, though the actual number of trades went up.

Which of the following, if true, could best explain the simultaneous increase in trades and decrease in number of people involved in trading?

A. Trading in bonds greatly increased in the past year
B. The increase in the number of professional traders was greater than the decrease in the number of private traders
C. Although an economy in crisis keeps most people away from the stock market, it provides an excellent opportunity for professional traders willing to take risks by becoming even more active in the markets than usual.
D. A new, advanced online interface for purchasing and selling stocks came into use this past year, allowing subscribers to trade in greater volumes than ever before.
E. Most people sold their stocks for fear the stock market would crash.
