Forex ECN Hotspot FX has published September trading volumes, showing marked improvement from August’s depressed volumes.
September volumes at Hotspot FX came in at $28.3 billion (average daily volumes), 25% above August’s $22.6 billion but still below the $30 billion monthly figures Hotspot FX was posting earlier this year.
Hotspot FX parent company Bats Global Markets Inc (BATS:BATS) recently agreed to be acquired by CBOE Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: CBOE) for $3.2 billion. The CBOE purchase of Bats will expand CBOE’s geographic reach and product lines, with Bats’ strong pan-European equities and global FX positions.
Does this portend a very strong September overall for the FX trading world?
