“The spike in volatility is behind this surge, with Euros and, interestingly, gold the first and second most heavily traded assets on the platform last month.

Our cloud infrastructure insured clients had access to robust trading platforms irrespective of their location or working environment.”

Specifically, Cboe reported a total trading volume of $1.21 billion in March of 2020. This is the best monthly volume since at least January of 2010, which is as far back as the platform’s records appear to go.
The Tokyo Financial Exchange (TFX) also posted a total trading volume of FX Daily Futures contracts of 6,442,605 via Click 365 this Wednesday. When comparing this against the previous month, trading volumes have more than doubled, soaring by 163.1 percent.
