# FX volumes rise in May

Foreign exchange volumes made robust gains on both a monthly and yearly basis across all multi-dealer platforms in May, in a continuation of the gains made since the start of the year on the back of higher volatility.

Overall, average daily volumes across all platforms jumped 19% in May, compared with April, and by 28% against May 2017. GTX made the biggest gains among its peers in both timeframes.
