Global FX market continues dramatic growth, according to benchmark Euromoney survey

The global foreign exchange market continues to grow at an extraordinary pace, with most of the world’s largest banks reporting noticeable and at times dramatic growth in turnover volumes in 2007.

Total global turnoverrose from $125 trillion in 2006 to $175 trillionin 2007, according to the latest foreign exchange survey from Euromoney. The number of respondents to the survey rose by 17.5% to 9,810 valid replies.

“Far from being the commoditized product with limited growth that many have sought to describe it as, FX has proved once again that it is a thriving asset. Furthermore, with products ranging from simple to complex, it is a transparent asset that has something to offer everyone”
