FXSpotStream LLC, a provider of multibank FX streaming aggregation and matching services across several asset classes, has just reported its latest volumes for the month ending March 2017, with its total volumes jumping out of a tight consolidation.
March has seen a rebound in trading volumes at institutional and retail venues, after what was billed as a largely lackluster February. While last month was devoid of any market drivers or volatility, March 2017 featured much more trading activity as markets snapped out of a subdued state.
