First indication that October was slow in the FX trading world.

CME Group, which runs the world's largest derivatives marketplace, announced that FX contract volumes (mainly Eurodollar futures contracts) in its system were down by 32% in October from September to an average of 702,000 contracts daily. October's volumes were also 23% below last year's October levels, and also represents CME's slowest month for FX since August 2009.
