Retail Forex broker Alpari has announced that April trading volumes came in at $138 billion, down 6% MoM and a similar amount from the company’s $143 billion-per-month volume average in the first three months of the year (January, February).
Still, a fairly good month by historical standards. Alpari averaged just over $100 billion per month in volumes during 2017.
The company said that the biggest improvements on the previous month volume-wise were seen on the XAUUSD and GBPJPY instruments, whose turnover grew by 10% and 17% respectively.
