CLS Group’s May Volumes Pare Recent Gains in Move Lower

CLS' May volumes were unable to build on last month's momentum.

CLS Group, a provider of risk mitigation and operational services, has reported its volumes and aggregation services data for the month ending May 2016, which incurred a pullback MoM that pared all of the previous month’s gains, ultimately extending a 2016 downtrend, according to a recent CLS statement.

2016 has been a mixed bag for CLS Group in terms of volumes, having oscillated over a monthly basis though largely moving lower throughout Q1 2016. Like other institutional venues, CLS Group has been unable to mount any sort of sustained recovery in its volumes, especially now with a traditional summer lull approaching. Despite the recent downtrend, last month saw a slight rebound in its volumes, though CLS’ latest tranche of data suggests that the momentum was not sustainable.
