Saxo Bank, a Denmark-based forex and CFD trading services provider, reported a total monthly volume of $444.4 billion in September.

This represents a 43% increase in total monthly volume compared to $311.8 billion recorded earlier in August.

Additionally, the broker’s average daily volume (ADV) in the month shot up to $20.2 billion, which is 49% above the prior month’s $13.6 billion.

The new record reverses Saxo Bank’s three months of consecutive decline in trading volumes that started in June.

Contributory Factors

Data shared by Saxo Bank shows that the 43% month-over-month (MoM) gain recorded in September was majorly pushed by equities and foreign exchange trading volumes.

However, forex trading ADV and monthly volumes surged 40% and 34% to $6.7 billion and $146.7 billion, respectively.

Finance Magnates reported that if the deal pulled through, the merged entity will be listed on the Amsterdam unit of pan-European exchange, Euronext, thereby becoming one of the few publicly-listed brokerages.
