Just like many forex brokers and the CME Group, which too reported its results today showing a 3% year on year decrease and 25% month on month increase, ICE’s fx volumes too showed similar trend of fx volumes recovering in the past month. ICE’s currency futures and options contracts dropped over 20% year on year in May (comparing to May 2011) but jumped over 46% month on month (comparing to April 2012).
