ASIC regulated Retail Forex broker IC Markets has announced today that it registered a record month for FX trading volumes in August 2017, at USD $343 billion.
Some key stats released by IC Markets:
- August 2017 Volume US$343 billion
- August Average Daily Volume US$14.9 billion
Looks like total volumes were a record, although average daily volume was the same as in July, but there were more trading days in the month of August.
Sydney-based IC Markets does not usually report its monthly volumes – last time was for July 2017 when the company hit a daily volume record of USD $21 billion on the 21st of July, before that March 2017 when IC reported a then-best $234 billion, and November 2016 at $188 billion.
