The operator of multiple Japanese trading venues, the Tokyo Financial Exchange (TFX), has disclosed its trading volume for August, showing a monthly dip in the demand for the derivatives of both foreign exchange (Forex ) and equities.

According to the official figures, the total trading volume with FX daily futures contracts on Click 365 came in at more than 1.76 million. This figure declined by 11.2 percent when compared to the previous month, but gained 3.2 percent year-over-year.

On average, 80,269 FX contracts were traded daily on the Japanese platform.

The dip in the market was expected as it is a cyclical pattern due to the summer holidays across Asia, North America and Europe. The trading overall volume on the exchange fell for a consecutive couple of months.

The US dollar-Japanese yen pair remained the most traded currency pair on Click 365, followed by the Turkish lira -Japanese yen and South African rand-Japanese yen. While trading in the USD-JPY pair declined in double-digits last month, demand for the other two currency pairs gained month-over-month: monthly trading volume with TRY-JPY and ZAR-JPY climbed 72.8 percent and 7.4 percent, respectively.
