Leaprate reports that Saxo Bank, after seeing some of it’s best trading volumes in two months, is showing that October’s trading volumes came in at only $218 billion, a 18% month-on-month fall from September’s whopping $266 billion.

Client deposits also fell, down to a mere $13.01 billion in October.

However, this is pretty much inline with what is being seen elsewhere in the retail FX sector. Gain Capital ( also saw it’s lowest volumes in three years this October, and other brokers have reported falls of around 4%.
