Thomson Reuters FX volumes rose slightly in August from July, while 360T’s – which now include Gain GTX turnover – fell slightly. Both were up year-on-year.
Last week Thomson Reuters reported average daily turnover in all FX products of $403 billion, compared to $398 billion in July – this represents a 9.8% increase year-on-year.
Spot FX ADV at TR across its platforms was unchanged month-on-month at $94 billion, however it was up 14.6% higher than August 2017.
Deutsche Boerse’s 360T business line meanwhile, reports ADV of $68.6 billion in all FX products, a 4.2% decline from July. In July, 360T’s volumes were boosted by the addition of Gain GTX activity, a platform the business bought earlier this year. On a year-on-year basis activity for the 360T group is up 29%, however on a comparative basis, adding GTX data to 360T for August 2017, the rise is a more modest 4.9%.
The latest data completes a mixed picture for the FX trading venue owners in August, for while all were up year-on-year, Thomson Reuters, NEX Markets, CME Group, CboeFX, FXSpotStream recorded month-on-month increases, while 360T, Integral and FastmatchFX reported small declines.
