The latest numbers echo the growth trend of the exchange as last month it posted 265.56 percent year-on-year volume jump, Finance Magnates reported.
Meanwhile, other trading platforms around the world are also reporting a similar jump in volumes, with a significant increase in market demand. However, a correction in the market can also be seen taking place.
Aggressively Extending Its Offerings
The middle eastern exchange also launched FX rolling futures contracts for three currencies – the euro, the British pound, and the Australian dollar against the US dollar. It also expanded its leading INR/USD contracts by adding a weekly contract for the same, including Indian rupee contracts that are among the most popular offerings from the exchange.
