The total average daily foreign exchange trading volumes (ADV) traded on Thomson Reuters platforms during the month of August amounted to $354.7 billion, which is higher by merely 3% when compared to July, but still much higher than a year ago – up by 18%.
The spot FX side of transactions was reported at $106.9 billion, which is higher by 8% when compared to the previous month. Starting from last month, the figures encompass trading on Thomson Reuters Matching and FXall in all transaction types – spot, forwards, swaps, options and non-deliverable forwards (NDFs).
