FxPro announces  the operating metrics for Q3 and there are a few interesting numbers. Trading volume has reached $302 billion, a 32.5% rise since Q3 2010 and 3.2% above Q2 2011.  

Unsurprisingly, EUR/USD is the most traded pair, with GBP/USD in the second place. What’s more interesting is that AUD/USD took the third place. Given the high volatility of the Aussie and the shallow movements in the yen, this trend will likely continue.
