During the month of September 2016, FXSpotStream reported an average daily volume (ADV) of $15.4 billion, which represented a jump of 24.3% MoM from $12.4 billion back in August 2016, which had represented a 2016 low for the venue. With volatility returning to markets, volumes were given a welcome boost, which were reflected in the September figures. In addition, the latest figures in September 2016 also reflect slight decline of -4.7% YoY from September 2015.

Despite securing a sizable gain in September 2016, FXSpotStream’s ADV has been unable to approach a previous peak of $21.0 billion set back in February 2016 – 2016 has been a mixed bag however, with the group finally snapping a consecutive monthly decine in volumes since a June, when the Brexit –induced volatility jolted markets worldwide.

September 2016 saw a total of 22 trading days, compared with 23 in the month prior. In terms of total volumes at FXSpotStream, September 2016 showed $339.9 billion, which was also higher by 18.9% MoM $285.8 billion in August 2016.
