Transaction tax may drive FX market from London | Reuters
FX trade will simply move to financial centers outside of Europe such as New York and Tokyo, they say.
"A tax would be detrimental to liquidity trading volumes in any financial market and it would quickly drive FX business overseas to American and Asian firms," said Brendan Callan, CEO of FXCM Europe, one of the world's largest retail FX brokers.
"Any clients that do not have to trade through Europe would not. A lot of the banking crisis was down to illiquid markets, and policymakers are not giving enough consideration to unintended consequences. Greece is not in danger of default because of speculators."

That would mean it will apply to the UK, which accounted for 36.7 percent of all foreign exchange market turnover in 2010 according to the Bank for International Settlements.
