FX Platforms Hit New Peaks in March

As expected, FX platforms saw a leap higher in average daily volume (ADV) during the market’s version of March Madness, with the first five to report data hitting new highs as well as establishing new individual day records.

And Another Thing…

I mentioned in a recent column the increasing noise around fragmentation in equity markets, specifically end user frustration and unhappiness with it, but it is noticeable to me that the same discussion is gaining more volume in FX.

I am struggling to find someone who was not surprised by the BIS data on Monday, I think most of us who study the FX committee semi-annual data closely expected somewhere around the $6 trillion mark, but obviously it blew through that by another 10%. This very much reflects the growth in emerging markets to […]
