The company’s FX pre-trade strategist, Ronald Leven commented, “The surge in equity market Volatility had a strong ripple effect across all markets – especially foreign exchange.”

“Also, with equity markets looking more vulnerable, the market became sensitive to global political pressures – especially the Ukraine and the Middle East – which had been ignored through much of the year. This has contributed to the record trading volumes we saw last month,” he added.

The month of September has seen dramatically higher trading volumes across the foreign exchange space, as after 21 year lows in G7 currencies volatility were printed earlier this year, the currency market was rocked hard by the ECB embarking on a new round of easing.
