      After beginning the year with a number of consecutive strong months of trading, institutional FX activity slowed somewhat across all eFX venues in April – despite continued good currency volatility.

      On average, each of Cboe FX, EuronextFX, FXSpotStream and Deutsche Borse‘s 360T saw a 16% MoM decline in volumes from March – the largest of which being Cboe FX’s 20% decline.

      The decline didnt seem to stem from a lack of currency volatility, which was plentiful during April. However the Easter long weekend at the beginning of the month (and the Orthodox Easter at end-of-month) seem to have slowed things down somewhat.
