stood at 109.2m, representing a 44.1% increase on the same
period last year and up around 26.8% contracts on
CME's FX markets had a particularly strong month, achieving
records in both daily average and in electronic trading
volumes: 336,000 contracts were averaged per day in FX with
275,000 of those being traded electronically. Meanwhile,
interest rate products exceeded 3m contracts per day for the
