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 October 2015.
The decline in spot Forex volumes, already witnessed in September 2015, continued in October 2015. The result was also lower than in October 2014, which comes as no surprise to many, considering the robust results Thomson Reuters posted for the autumn months of 2014.
Let’s take a look at the particular metrics.
- Average daily FX spot volumes in October 2015 totaled $104 billion, down 4.6% from September 2015 and down 23% from October 2014 levels.
- Other trading volumes (forwards, swaps, options, etc) averaged $249 billion in October 2015, which is 2.7% lower than in September 2015 but 4.2% higher than in October 2014.
- Average daily FX volumes for all platforms were $353 billion in October 2015, down 3.3% from September 2015 and down 5.6% from October 2014.
