Thomson Reuters Corporation (TSE:TRI) has earlier today posted the operating metrics for its Forex electronic trading platforms Matching, FXall and the Thomson Reuters SEF for September 2015. At least when it comes to FX spot volumes – last month failed to match the results achieved in August 2015, when most Forex companies benefited from an upsurge in market volatility.
Annual comparisons also showed a drop in FX spot volumes, which is hardly surprising given how robust September 2014 was.
But let’s examine the particular metrics.
- Average daily FX spot volumes in September 2015 totaled $109 billion, down 8.4% from August 2015 and down 24% from September 2014 levels.
- Other trading volumes (forwards, swaps, options, etc) averaged $256 billion in September 2015, which is 4.5% higher than in August 2015 but about 6% lower than in September 2014.
- Average daily FX volumes for all platforms were $365 billion in September 2015, up 0.3% from August 2015 and down 12.7% from September 2014.
