New York, July 26, 2010 – The Foreign Exchange Committee today released the results of its twelfth Survey of North American Foreign Exchange Volume. For the April 2010 reporting period, key findings are featured below.

  • Average daily volume in spot foreign exchange transactions rose relative to the prior survey, but remained below the record reached in October 2008. Average daily volumes in both outright forwards and foreign exchange swaps, however, registered new highs of $104 billion and $203 billion, respectively, in April 2010.
  • Since the survey’s inception in 2004, the average trade size declined steadily from $4.3 million to roughly $1.8 million in October 2008. It has remained near this level in all subsequent surveys.
