GTX forex volumes

GTX, the institutional FX arm of retail forex broker Gain Capital Holdings Inc (NYSE:GCAP), has reported a 10% decline in trading volumes during the month of October, after seeing near-record trading volumes during the months of August and September.

The weaker volumes, although still strong on a historical basis, were driven by low currency volatility over the past few weeks, with the benchmark EURUSD currency pair trading in a tight 1.16-1.18 band throughout most of the month.

GTX reported total trading volumes of $322.9 billion in October or $14.7 billion ADV. On a total volumes basis that was down slightly, by 6%, from September’s near record $341.7 billion, but on an average daily volume basis GTX saw volumes down 10%, as there were more trading days in October than September.
