Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Foreign Exchange Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The global foreign exchange market to grow at a CAGR of 6.76% during the period 2016-2020
Global Foreign Exchange Market 2016-2020, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
Foreign exchange markets remained robust during the 2007 financial crisis. The advent of electronic platforms has significantly boosted day-to-day trading volumes, which generates higher levels of market returns, that have remained uncorrelated compared to the different trading markets across the world.
A trend which is expected to propel market growth is an enhanced strategic formulation and the adopting of structuring and pricing tools. FX traders across the globe need strategies that help to arrive at accurate valuations so that accessing risks becomes easy. Policyholders need to formulate risk management analytics and different market standard models that may guide the players in terms of interest rates, inflation, and credit equity - among others. Such strategies may help to structure and price currency trade executions, which includes regulatory compliance in a single platform. Many strategies - such as pre-trade analytics tools - help manage specific currency exposures and support decision making by market participants.
According to the report, a key growth driver is the dynamic market structure. From 2012 to 2015, there has been a significant rise in the number of participants in the foreign exchange market. These include hedgers, speculators, and central banks; we note that the rise in the number of participants has expanded foreign exchange trading volumes.
Financial institutions accounted for half of the overall FX trading volumes in 2015, and non-reporting banking participants accounted for half of the financial institutions' trading volumes in 2015, followed by hedge funds/proprietary trading firms, and institutional investors.
Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is collusion in the forex market by banks and it is considered an unethical practice.

- Outright forward and FX swaps
