FXSpotStream LLC, a provider of multibank FX aggregation services for spot FX trading, recovered from its low during the holidays last year as it generated a total monthly volume of $1.3 trillion in January. The volume grew by 3% from $1.26 trillion in December.

The aggregation service, which published its trading metrics for January 2023 on Wednesday, saw its average daily volume (ADV) jump by 5.2% to $60.6 billion in January. This is up from $57.6 billion posted in the prior month. However, compared to January 2022, FXSpotStream’s total volume last month improved by a greater measure, rising by 14.3% year-over-year.

Meanwhile, Finance Magnates reported earlier in the month that the 11-year-plus journey of Alan F. Schwarz, who co-founded FXSpotStream in August 2011, comes to an end this month. Schwarz saw FXSpotStream through its growth phase as the aggregation service expanded its client base to streaming liquidity providers, such as Barclays, BofA Merrill Lynch, Societe Generale, Citi and Commerzbank.
