Brokers News Reports Significant YoY Growth in Trading Volumes

April and May 2013 were really strong months for – the broker reported exceptional operational metrics, and I did expect this trend to go on, however June proved me wrong. Last month, the broker seems to have suffered a slight decline in its operational metrics, both in its retail and institutional departments. 

The drop in trading volumes is not big at all – 4.1% compared to May 2013 for retail, and another 4.1% for institutional volumes. 
On a year-on-year basis, however, is doing more than well – compared to June 2012, the retail business has grown by 55.6%, and the institutional one – by the whopping 172.5%. 
This said, you can see how the slightly lower operational metrics are not a reason to be concerned – the broker currently accounts for almost 100,000 active tradable accounts, which places it amongst the industry giants, and if the rumor for integrating its services with the Tradable platform turns out to be true, we are likely to see a spike in the number of customers signing up with the broker.
