Saxo Bank has started off the year with a bang, reporting a 29% rise in average daily turnover which rose in January 2014 to $13.8 billion, recovering from $10.7 bln per day in December 2013, according to the latest data published today on its Saxo World investor transparency website.
Total monthly volumes came in at $304 billion for January, also up 29% from the December total of $235 billion.
The Copenhagen-based bank, involved in multiple asset classes in its online brokerage offerings concluded 2013 with volumes tapering in the latter part of the year, and today’s figures show that a reversal of that downtrend may be underway with the recovery accounting for an increase of almost a third of December’s volumes.
