The Tokyo Foreign Exchange Market Committee (TFEMC) today released the results of its Turnover Survey of Tokyo Foreign Exchange Market covering transactions in October 2016 (see attached tables).

The TFEMC conducts the survey in order to provide market participants with developments in the Tokyo foreign exchange (FX) market in an accurate and timely manner, thereby contributing to the sound growth of the market. In conducting the survey, the Financial Markets Department of the Bank of Japan provides technical assistance in collecting and processing the data of respective respondents.

Turnover in October 2016 decreased from the previous survey which covered transactions in April 2016. Turnover decreased in all trading instruments with the exception of Forwards.

From this round of the survey, the TFEMC made some amendments to improve user-friendliness, such as expanding the scope of currencies to disclose (see table 6 and annex table 3).
