I’m a few days late because the market has been keeping me super busy but here’s the latest FX Volume Data and Charts from the main central banks

London Link to Report
- Average daily reported UK foreign exchange turnover was $2,191 billion in April 2011, 23% higher than in October 2010, and 30% higher than a year earlier. This was the highest level of turnover recorded since the survey began.
- The increase in turnover was driven by rises in spot (+32%) and FX swaps (+19%) turnover.

New York Link to Report
- Daily FX market turnover dropped 5.3% to $396B from April 2010

Tokyo Link to Report

- In this period, while the Eastern Japan Great Earthquake had a serious impact on the Tokyo foreign exchange market, retail margin trading, electronic trading, and emerging currency trading remained active.

Singapore Link to Report

- Average daily reported ‘traditional’ foreign exchange turnover was US$314bn, a 12.9% increase compared to October 2010.

Past performance is not indicative of future results. Trading forex carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to trade any such leveraged products you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading on margin, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
