August was characterised by strong volumes but September 2017 saw a less upbeat turnover of $341.7 billion.

GAIN Capital’s institutional unit GTX has just reported its monthly turnover for September 2017, which saw its overall figures notch a slight month-over-month growth in terms of its average daily volume (ADV). Total turnover failed to build on last month’s healthy gains, ultimately showing a flat performance on lower volatility and a shortened trading schedule in September.
