SGX registers 8% MoM drop in FX futures volumes in December 2015


Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX:S68) today announced its operating metrics for December 2015, with Forex volumes staging a further drop in monthly terms, continuing a trend already observed in November 2015.

Although SGX reported record yuan trading volumes for the last month of 2015, the overall FX futures volumes fell. This apparently reflects a month-on-month decrease in Indian rupee trading volumes, which usually account for the biggest part of the FX futures turnover at the Exchange.

In December 2015, the FX futures volume at SGX was 425,188 contracts, down 8% month on month and up 133% year on year.

SGX INR/USD Futures volume was 366,372 contracts, down 14% from November 2015 and up 116% from December 2014.
