Despite the monthly pickup in trading, on a Year-over-Year comparison the JPX FX volumes seem much worse. The total trading volume is down 289,123 units from August 2013, which is a 72.3% decrease. The monetary value of the OSE-FX is down ¥298,378 million equal to a 70.3% YoY drop.
The OSE-FX figures seems to be in line with the other major Japanese FX trading volumes released today. The Click 365 margin FX trading volumes were up 15.1% in August at the Tokyo Financial Exchange, but still way down from the figures of the same month last year.
