After a bearish month, the Saxo Bank has published details of trading activities on its brokerage platform, showing an uptrend in the market demand across all the asset classes, including foreign exchange (forex).
The Danish brokerage reported a total trading volume of $270.7 billion in November, compared to the previous month’s $254.2 billion. That was a monthly volumetric increase of around 6.5 percent.
Saxo Bank offers trading services with commodities, equities, fixed income instruments and forex pairs.
Considering the individual asset classes, the forex volumes on Saxo came in at $117.6 billion with a marginal 2.9 percent jump month-on-month. The forex demand needed a significant boost to reach the average monthly levels of the first half of this year.
