While market surveys have shown an increased uptake in online foreign exchange trading, these have been borne out by figures released by Cognotec showing year-on-year growth in transaction volumes of 78 per cent. Globally, Cognotecs figures show relatively stable and uniform growth (see table) with the exception of Japan, which has grown by 405 per cent year-on-year. Japan was starting from a low base that reflects the structure of the banking industry there so the figures reflect a catch-up period, said CEO, Brian Maccaba.
