Trading volumes at Thomson Reuters saw a slight increase from those reported in August. The portal recorded average daily trading volume of $110 billion from $107 billion in August 2013. Trading volumes in 2013 have been considerably lower at Thomson Reuters from a year earlier; in September 2012 the venue saw average daily trading reach $133 billion, 22% higher than the current months figures.
FXall has turned out to be a good buy for Thomson Reuters as both FXall and Thomson Reuters have been scoring higher than rival EBS. EBS’s average daily trading volume for September stood at $81.2 billion.
