CME, EBS Volumes Decline in January

Although EBS volumes rose month-on-month, average daily volume data for CME Group weakened in January from the year before.

CME’s FX futures and options product set had ADV of 838,000 contracts per day, which Profit & Loss estimates represents $83 billion per day, a 23.5% fall from January 2018. This is also a 15.3% drop from December’s estimate of $98 billion per day in notional value.

Meanwhile, EBS, which is now owned by CME, reports spot FX volume of $87.1 billion in January, 14% higher than December, but 17% down on a year-on-year basis. This also represents the worst January for the platform since it started reporting ADV in January 2007.
