The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) has announced the 11th Triennial Central Bank Survey of Foreign Exchange and Over-The-Counter (OTC) Derivatives Market Activity.
The survey has been conducted every three years since 1986, and is a global benchmark for the financial markets. BIS describes it as “the most comprehensive source of information on the size and structure of global foreign exchange and OTC derivatives markets”.
Preliminary results for turnover will be published by the BIS in early September 2016, and for amounts outstanding in early November 2016. The final, comprehensive results will be published in December 2016.
The previous survey, conducted in April 2013, showed that trading in foreign exchange spot and OTC derivatives markets was then averaging $5.3 trillion per day.
More than 1,200 financial institutions located in 52 countries are due to contribute to the 2016 Triennial Survey.
The results of previous Triennial Surveys are available on the BIS website.
