$1.2 Trillion a Day

  1. Newsweek states that "foreign-exchange trading volume rings in at $1.2 trillion each day." Does anyone know of any current statistics on how much average volume each component of the market has: spot, forwards, futures, and swaps?
  2. Pff if they count with leverage it is more meaningless than it appears ! It's the number of contracts, the quality of the spread, liquidity which is something different from volume itself, that really count.
