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 July 2015. Last month was obviously affected by the traditional summer slowdown, as trading volumes staged a drop for the fourth month in a row.
Volumes at FXall, the spot FX platform, barely managed to exceed levels seen in July 2014, whereas volumes at other platforms performed a bit better, being at levels seen in April 2015.
It is time to check out the particular numbers.
- Average daily FX spot volumes in July 2015 totaled $101 billion, down 6.5% from June 2015 and up 2% from July 2014 levels.
- Other trading volumes (forwards, swaps, options, etc) averaged $252 billion in July 2015, which is 5.6% lower than in June 2015 but nearly 3% higher than in July 2014.
- Average daily FX volumes for all platforms were $353 billion in July 2015, down 5.8% from June 2015 and up 2.6% from July 2014.
