Saxo’s FX Trading Gains Momentum in November

The Denmark-based brokerage firm Saxo Bank, recorded a rise in its foreign exchange trading volume in November, hitting $118.6 billion. This indicated a 5.4% surge when compared to October’s figures. Despite a 14% year-over-year drop in forex trading volume last month, the number was the highest in the preceding five months. The daily average forex trading volume for November was around $5.4 billion, about 5.9% higher than October, matching the levels of June and July.

Inconsistent Trading Demands

As the appetite for forex trading saw a month-to-month rise, the trading volume for equities, Saxo’s highest trading volume contributor, decreased. The monthly trading volume for equities was $198.4 billion, down 33.3% from October, marking the lowest level since April of the previous year.

In the same month, Saxo’s commodities trading volume dipped by 16.5% to $35.4 billion. Simultaneously, the demand for fixed-income trading, which usually contributes the least, rose by 9.2% to $10.6 billion.

In November, Saxo Bank’s total monthly trading volume from forex, equities, commodities, and fixed income was $362.9 billion. This represented a 21.4% and 21.1% decrease, month-to-month and year-to-year, respectively. The daily trading volume average in November was $16.5 billion, a step up from $21 billion the prior month.

Saxo’s Cryptocurrency Trading Numbers Unreported
