Thomson Reuters sees daily FX volumes drop 8.2% MoM in April

Thomson Reuters Corporation (TSE:TRI) has earlier today reported the operating metrics for its Forex electronic trading platforms for April 2015. The picture the data painted resembled to a great extent to what we have already seen at other retail and institutional trading platforms last month, as trading volumes were down on a monthly basis, but up in annual terms.

Let’s take a look at the numbers.

  • Average daily FX spot volumes in April 2015 amounted to $118 billion, down 10.6% from March 2015 and up substantial 13.5% from April 2014 levels.
  • Other trading volumes (forwards, swaps, options, etc) averaged $252 billion in April 2015, which is 7% lower than in March 2015 but 2% higher than in April 2014.
  • Average daily FX volumes for all platforms were $369 billion in April 2015, down 8.2% from March 2015 and up decent 4.8% from April 2014.
