FOREX.Com Records Rise in Forex Trading Volumes in Jan'2014

GAIN Capital, the parent company of major US Forex broker FOREX.Com, has just reported a set of very strong operating metrics for January 2014, marking a solid start to the year with a rise in both retail and institutional trading volumes.
Let's kick off with the statistics for the retail segment: the retail clients of the broker traded volumes worth massive $212.5 billion. The result is very impressive as it marks an increase of 44% against levels seen in January 2013 and a jump of 38.4% from volumes seen in December 2013. Average daily volumes soared 32.2% month-on-month to $9.7 billion – the reading was 51% higher than a year earlier. The number of retail over-the-counter accounts also delivered a nice piece of news – the count was 98,825 last month, which (albeit unchanged from December levels) was up by 63% from the reading registered a year ago. Daily average revenue trades (DARTs) added weight to the positive metrics, rising on a monthly and annual basis to 15,279.
The robust set of retail sector operating metrics marks stark contrast with the more dismal performance in this segment that we saw in December 2013. You may recall that the broker saw retail Forex volumes drop on a monthly and annual basis, marking a controversial end to 2013. Yet, the activity of FOREX.Com over the past months is obviously starting to bear fruit – one of the most productive moves to attract retail Forex traders has been the launch of tradable, the app-store like platform. In the start of 2014, the broker made the platform available for all of its clients, including those outside of the United States.
And now let's take a look at the institutional segment metrics – overall institutional trading volume amounted to $494 billion in January 2014, up by 28.5% from December 2013 and up by whooping 57.1% from January 2013. This is a particularly good bit of news for GAIN, as the company has announced that it will seek to boost its non-retail operations and to raise the share of non-retail revenues to 50% of the total in the long term. We see a broker that manages to successfully pursue its aims.
Below you can see the official press release.
