Saxo Bank’s avg. FX volume sees a monthly gradual fall
The currency market plays hide & seek, especially in October 2022. Saxo Bank reported a lower figure with larger disappointment in its Commodities section. The month-over-Month figure for average FX volume is 9%, down to $6.1 billion for October 2022. On the other hand, September 2022 painted a better picture with $6.7 billion in the reports.
The year-on-year comparison is better, though, as there is an increase of 20%, taking the figure of $5.1 billion on the higher side. While the yearly time frame is better, the same cannot be said about the monthly picture.
The total volume is not up to the mark either. October registered $128 billion against $146.7 billion for September 2022. Like the average figures, the total figure went above its mark for the month in the previous year. The total FX volume stood at $113 billion in October 2021. It gives a rise of 13% despite a rise not appearing on a Month-over-Month basis.
