FXSpotStream, the aggregator service of LiquidityMatch and a major institutional platform in the FX market, has posted its trading volume numbers for September, showing a significant jump in monthly numbers and average daily volume (ADV) as well.
The forex trading venue saw total trades worth over $961.4 billion in September, compared to $864.4 billion in the previous month. That was a month-on-month jump of more than 11 percent.
That resulted in an ADV of $43.7 billion for the month, a jump of 6.2 percent from the previous month. Year-on-year, that was an increase of 17 percent. Additionally, the platform highlighted that it was the third-highest ADV it recorded so far.
Similar to other platforms, FXSpotStream saw a massive demand in March due to the effect of Coronavirus on financial markets. That month, the trading platform recorded a total volume of $1.37 trillion, the highest since its establishment.

Despite the heavy correction in the market from that massive spike, FXSpotStream is again seeing a healthy uptrend. Indeed, the platform’s ADV was above $40 billion for the past four consecutive months.
Other institutional and retail brokerages are also reporting a similar trend after their volumes slumped post-March.
