Triennial Central Bank Survey of Foreign Exchange and Derivatives Market Activity (2016)

1 Sep 2016

In April 2016 the survey of foreign exchange market and derivatives market turnover took place in which 52 central banks from all around the world, including the Czech National Bank, participated. Similarly to previous surveys, Bank for International Settlement (BIS) co-ordinated this project. The objective of this survey is to obtain information on the size and structure of foreign exchange and derivatives markets, which serves not only to central banks but also to market participants and to both academic and general public.

In the enclosed tables there are aggregate data, collected by the Czech National Bank, on nominal turnover of trades with financial instruments executed by the reporting dealers in the Czech Republic for the period of April 2016. The global data collected by the BIS, based on the contributions of all participating central banks, can be found on the internet address referenced below. Figures are stated in millions of US dollars.

The following ten banks took part in this survey in the Czech Republic: COMMERZBANK AG Prague branch, Ceska sporitelna a.s., Ceskoslovenska obchodni banka a.s., Citibank Europe plc, Expobank CZ, a.s., HSBC Bank plc – Prague branch, ING Bank N.V., Komercni banka a.s, Raiffeisenbank a.s., UniCredit Bank Czech Republic, a.s.
