EBS and Reuters trading volumes fall in October

FX trading volumes on EBS and Reuters fell in October as the high levels of volatility seen over the summer receded.

Average daily spot FX volumes on EBS in October were $170 billion, a 7% decline over September but still a 6% year-on-year increase. Average daily FX spot volumes on Thomson Reuter’s main FX spot trading services – Reuters Dealing, Matching and Reuters Trading for FX – fell for the first time in three months to $155bn in October.

This represents a 12% decline from the previous month, though still a 3% increase year-on-year.

Turnover has fallen in all currencies since the summer months, when unfolding events in the eurozone drove unusually high trading volumes, but risk-associated currencies such as the Australian dollar “continue to see higher than normal levels of turnover”, says Jas Singh, global head of marketplaces at Thomson Reuters.
