FXCM fx volumes leucadia logo

Continuing the string of strong FX volume reports we have seen from across the Retail and Institutional trading world for the month of May 2018, retail broker FXCM has announced that its volumes in May were up 15% month-over-month, $212 billion versus $184 billion in April.

We are expecting a (quiet) rebranding of FXCM in the coming weeks. FXCM incorporated the name of its parent company Leucadia into its logo a few months back. However Leucadia recently renamed itself Jefferies Financial Group, reflecting its largest subsidiary, and as such we expect a new logo from FXCM in the near future.

Back to FXCM’s May volume metrics…
