Institutional FX trading volumes show summer weakness in July, down 4%

In a year which has been anything but normal, some normalcy has returned to the institutional FX trading market.

The normally slow summer months look like they will be – normally slow! Following a very strong but up-and-down first half of the year for leading institutional eFX venues, trading volume data for July show a slight decline averaging 4% for the month of July. All FX ECNs surveyed showed volumes down MoM from June of between 2% and 6%. Again, quite typical each year during July (and August), when many personnel on institutional trading desks are away on vacation.

Cboe FX (formerly HotspotFX)

  • July 2021 average daily volumes were $32.68 billion, -2.4% MoM.

EuronextFX (formerly FastMatch)

  • July 2021 ADV $18.17 billion, -6.1% below June’s ADV $19.35 billion.


  • FXSpotStream’s ADV YoY (July ‘21 vs July ‘20) increased 18.55% to USD47.911billion
