Alpari May volumes hit $260 billion, another record

Alpari sees five consecutive months of FX volume trading records.

Global FX broker Alpari has reported its best ever month in May, with total group volumes coming in at $260 billion — eclipsing Alpari’s April volumes of $245 billion and March’s $238 billion. These stellar results come during a month when we have seen trading volume records at other leading FX firms including FXCM and GMO Click.

We don’t have the breakdowns yet in terms of Russia vs. Rest-of-World volumes at Alpari for the month. But based on previous experience (see graph below), Russia has lately accounted for more than half of the group’s volumes — as much as 59% in March. We’ll bring the figures to you when we get them.
