FXSpotStream LLC, a provider of multibank FX aggregation services for spot FX trading, released trading metrics for August. Interestingly, the total volume for forex trading handled by the platform went up month-over-month by 4.5 percent, with the absolute figure at $1.4 trillion. It happened in a month when the industry witnessed a drop in activities due to the effects of the summer holidays.

Year-over-year the total volume of trading jumped by almost 43 percent.

However, the industry-wide trend can be seen in FXSpotStream’s average daily volume (ADV), which came in at $60.8 billion. It was a 4.9 percent decline from the previous month but strengthened by 47.2 percent year-over-year.

The total volume of trading on FXSpotStream for last month only remained behind in March and June 2022. The total trading volume, as well as ADV, peaked last March with figures at $1.61 trillion and $70.1 billion, respectively.

The total volume of trading surged despite an ADV as August had 23 trading days, compared to only 21 in July.
