Activity on FXSpotStream’s trading venue, the aggregator service of LiquidityMatch LLC, dropped slightly last month, but it was still well above the $900 billion mark across its streaming and matching products. The company reported an average daily volume (ADV) of $40.4 billion. This deteriorated on a monthly basis by 7 percent from $43.2 billion back in June 2020. Still, the ADV figure increased by 11 percent from year-ago levels, when weighed against $36.2 billion in July 2019.
FXSpotStream also saw a mild drop across its total trading volumes in July 2020 after reporting just $929 billion for the month. This was down 3 percent from $952 billion in June. The difference seen can’t be explained by fewer working days since July saw a total of 23 trading days relative to 22 days in the month prior.
FXSpotStream provides a multibank FX aggregation service for spot FX trading. The platform operates as a bank-owned consortium that provides the infrastructure to facilitate the route of trades from clients to liquidity providers.
