FXSpotStream Claims New High in FX ADV, CME Steady

Following news last week that CboeFX and GTX had hit new records for FX average daily volume (ADV), FXSpotStream has now also reported a new peak in activity.

In February the platform says it handled $28.8 billion, a 9.5% increase on January, which was itself a new record high, and 53.7% up on February 2017.

CME Group, meanwhile reports a very slight decrease in FX activity from January, but a strong year-on-year rise.

The Merc says it handled 1,087,000 contracts per day in its FX futures and options business, down less than 1% from January’s 1,093,000. Profit & Loss estimates this to represent a notional volume of $107.5 billion per day, of which roughly 10% is in options products. Year-on-year, CME’s FX volume is up 43%.
