FXall and Thomson Reuters report growth in January volumes

January was a very strong month across the board in the FX world.

After a 2012 which many FX brokers want to forget, as low market volatility kept trading volumes low, 2013 has clearly begun with a bang. After healthy January volume reports from Forex ECN ICAP EBS and from the CME Group (FX futures) — as well as record volumes seen at leading Japanese retail FX broker GMO Click — we now get similarly strong January figures from Thomson Reuters, and its subsidiary FXall.

FXall had a best-ever month at $109 billion average daily volume, up 32% from last year January (and up 9% from December). Thomson Reuters’ FX spot volume came in at $126 billion daily in January — up 24% from December, but 1% below last year January.

Fairly soon, we expect to see Thomson Reuters and FXall formally merge their respective FX businesses, under the management of the FXall team.
