Thomson Reuters' down month follows upbeat reports on June figures we have already seen from FXall (June was actually a record month) and ICAP-EBS. This helps us make even more sense of Thomson Reuters' acquisition of FXall at a healthy premium to its public market price, and 83% premium to its February IPO price, as Thomson Reuters seeks to not just maintain its lead in the Forex ECN world but also to jump-start growth.
