FXall separates its services according to client type. Relationship trading is largely by corporates and asset managers, while active trading refers to the firm’s ECN platform and continuous stream platform – used primarily by banks, broker-dealers and hedge funds. June average daily volumes for relationship trading and active trading at FXall were both records, at $75.7 billion and 22.9 billion, respectively. Average daily volume for the second quarter was an all-time high of $92.4 billion, up 6% on the first quarter of 2012 and 8% higher than the second quarter of last year. The rise in volumes at FXall reflects similar growth at other trading venues in June, with EBS and CME Group reporting increases last month.
