Saxo Bank’s trading volumes had been in decline in every month of the 2016 calendar year, falling off a peak of $12.9 billion in average daily volumes (ADV) in January 2016. The latest tranche of statistics in April helps allay this trend, orchestrating a rebound to $12.4 billion in ADV – this corresponds to a MoM ascension of 12.7% from just $11.0 billion back in March 2016. Compared to last year, April’s figures also have moved higher by 22.8% YoY from $10.1 billion in April 2015.

April 2016 saw a total of $260.0 billion, reflecting a gain of 2.4% MoM from $254.0 billion in the month prior. This figure has also easily surpassed its 2015 equivalent, with April 2016’s volumes registering a YoY hike of 17.1% YoY from $222.0 billion in April 2016. The latest figures are the highest at Saxo Bank in over a year, since reporting $302.0 billion in January 2015.
Finally, Saxo Bank’s client collateral deposits also yielded a steady rise MoM, which moved higher to $12.06 billion in April 2016, up by 3.6% MoM from $11.64 billion in March 2016. Extrapolated to a YoY comparison, this figure is slightly higher by a factor of 2.9% YoY from $11.31 billion in April 2015.
