KCG’s Forex ECN unit KCG Hotspot has another good month, FX trading volumes up 6% over February and 18% over last year.
The first quarter has ended with a bang for the world’s leading Forex ECNs. After seeing ICAP’s EBS and Thomson Reuters’ FXall show nice rises over February levels including an all-time high at FXall, KCG’s Hotspot held suit and reported March average daily volumes at $32.1 billion – 6% over February and 18% over last year March.
So how about the retail forex brokers?
First indications so far have been mixed. Saxo Bank saw March volumes down 10% while EXNESS reported a 17% increase and Gain Capital’s Forex.com a 9% gain. We are still to hear from industry leader FXCM.
Stay tuned to LeapRate, we’ll have all the figures when they become available – and of course we’ll digest what it all means in our monthly Retail FX Volume Index.
