CLS Volumes Down in October

Data from CLS shows that the utility handled $1.71 trillion per day in October, slightly down from September’s $1.729 trillion but 5.8% up year-on-year.

CLS settled a daily average of $471 billion in spot FX, up 5.3% month-on-month and 10.3% up year-on-year. This generally reflects the volume reports issued earlier this month by the major FX trading platforms.

There was a decline in FX swap activity, however, with CLS settling $1.161 trillion per day in these products, down 3.2% from September but up 6.5% from October 2017. In outright forwards, settlement activity declined on both a month-on-month basis (by 6%) and year-on-year (by 21.2%) to $78 billion per day.
