However, in April, the volume slashed to half as the platform posted only $643.6 billion in monthly trading. But since then the market was showing signs of recovery as in May the platform posted $658.6 billion in trades.
There is also a healthy uptrend in the average daily volume of forex trades as in April it slipped to $29.2 billion.
When it comes to quarterly numbers, the massive uptick in March has still dwarfed the last quarter despite the market recovery.
For Q2 2020, CBOE FX saw $2,063 billion in currency exchanges compared to $2,773 billion in the previous quarter – a decline of 34 percent. Notably, in Q1 2020, this figure jumped by 41.9 percent.
Along with CBOE FX, other forex trading platforms are also posting healthy growing numbers since the massive dip in April. Earlier today, Finance Magnates reported that Tokyo Financial Exchange (TFX) reported a monthly jump of 17.2 percent for forex trading volumes.
