Total ICAP electronic broking average daily volumes of US$644.1bn for July

03 August 2012


London, 3 August 2012 – ICAP, the world’s leading interdealer broker, announces today that average daily volumes on the BrokerTec and EBS platforms for July were US$644.1bn, down 9% from June. For the month of July, there was a year-on-year decrease of 27%.

Average daily spot FX volumes on the EBS platform were $106.7bn, down 22% month-on-month and down 41% year-on-year after exceptionally high volumes last July that followed a number of sovereign credit rating downgrades.

Average daily volumes in fixed income products on the BrokerTec platform were $537.4bn, a decrease of 6% on the previous month and 24% year-on-year against a backdrop of lower risk appetite and continued uncertainty around the eurozone crisis. Despite the pullback in general trading activity, July was the second highest month for European Government Bond volumes, and there were also record volumes in the French and Belgian markets helped by a busy new issuance calendar.

Overall repo volumes were $437.6bn in July, down 2% month-on-month and 23% year-on-year, the latter reflecting a 19% decrease in US repo and a 26% decrease in European repo. Average daily US Treasury volumes on BrokerTec were US$99.8bn, a decrease of 18% month-on-month and 27% year-on-year.

ICAP reports all of its electronic broking volumes on a single count basis.
