FX Volumes at KCG's Hotspot division have slumped in the month of April by 20% to $25.2 billion daily, marking the lowest average daily volume since December 2012. The total amount of trading during the month has come out at $555 billion, which is 17.6% lower than in the month of March.

Compared to a year ago the figures are somewhat lower - by about 14.6%, which can not be a big surprise considering the ongoing low volatility theme in 2014, especially since the start of the month of April. KCG reports volumes, counting one side of the transaction since the second quarter of 2012.

Looking at the company's overall figures, the consolidated volume of U.S. equity trades averaged $273.5 billion and 6.6 billion shares traded per day.
