Shares of Ideanomics Inc. (IDEX) soared 53% toward a 19-month high in very active afternoon trading Monday, after the facilitator of the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) announced an order for 200 EVs in China. Trading volume was 291.2 million shares, compared with the full-day average of about 23.8 million shares, and enough to make the stock the most actively traded on major U.S. exchanges. The company said its Mobile Energy Global (MEG) subsidiary secured the order, which was valued at RMB24 million ($3.2 million), or about $16,000 per vehicle.
