However, September’s higher average daily figures indicate that Saxo Bank’s trading activity was able to stay ahead of October in terms of higher daily trading volumes. This difference in the number of trading days is the reason why the reported total for the month of October was higher MoM, even though ADV was still down slightly over the same period. Nonetheless, October’s ADV was $10.4 bln, and lower by $100 million or almost 1% MoM.

The ADV and monthly totals reported in October are still well below Saxo’s respective monthly averages in 2013 (including October); whereas the clients’ collateral deposits for trading during October is well above the average monthly average (year-to-date).
