Refinitiv Reports April FX Volumes
Posted by Colin Lambert. Last updated: May 9, 2022
After a delay in publishing March FX volume data, Refinitiv has returned to its usual schedule and published April FX data in the first half of the month. As was the case with other platforms, activity declined from March’s recent peak, but remains comfortably up year-on-year.
Spot volume across the various Refinitiv and FXall platforms was $102 billion per day in April, down 8.9% from March, but up 21.4% year-on-year. Non-spot activity, meanwhile, was less volatile, average daily volume being $363 billion in non-spot, a 4.2% decline from March and up 1.4% year-on-year.
Compared to its peers, the results are largely in line, although Refinitiv did see a slightly reduced month-on-month decline, while year-on-year gains were largely on trend with other platforms to report.
