Breaking down April’s total $373 billion of ADV, $97 billion was FX spot volume compared to $276 billion for other products. Monthly spot FX volume fell for a third consecutive month, this time declining by -6.7% lower MoM from $104 million in March 2016 – by extension, all other products’ volume at Thomson Reuters in April 2016 climbed 7.0% MoM from $258 billion in the month prior.
Thomson Reuters made headlines late last month after it also reported its Q1 2016 operating figures – these were mostly lower across the board relative to the same figures for 2015, however the one saving grace was an influx of cash flow from its operations, which secured a virtual groundswell in 2016.
