Retail FX broker FXCM continued its strong start to 2018, reporting overall FX trading volumes of $239 billion. That ranks just 4% below January’s $250 billion, but given that February had fewer trading days than January (20 versus 22), February’s $12.0 billion average daily volume was actually 5% above January.

Keeping in mind, that January 2018 was FXCM’s best month since the February 2017 crisis which saw FXCM exit the US FX business, and its longtime CEO Drew Niv leave the company.

February 2018 also saw FXCM rebrand and change up its logo, adding in effective controlling shareholder Leucadia’s name into the FXCM brand logo.
