Retail Forex broker Alpari Limited has earlier today published its Forex operating metrics for October 2015, with Forex volumes staging a decrease in both monthly and annual terms.
Alpari said its Forex turnover for October 2015 amounted to $90.8 billion. The reading is 1.7% lower than the $92.4 billion in turnover registered in September 2015.
The FX volume drop in annual terms is more pronounced, as the result for October 2015 is 15.9% lower than the $108 billion in Forex turnover registered in October 2014.
The company said it did not see any marked changes in the trading dynamics of the most popular currency pairs. At the same time, Alpari noted, traders have shown appetite for instruments that were not in demand in the past, like, for instance, the GBP/NZD currency pair.
