A month ago, GMO Click Securities Inc. released its forex futures trading volumes for the month of May 2017. The preceding April was a rough month for the asset and the company, and so May showed a recovery. When compared to January 2017’s report, May’s metrics were not as high up there. Forex futures appear to have begun slipping in February, despite the results increasing the following March.
