FOREX.COM Records Steep Y/Y Jump in Trading Volumes in July

FOREX.COM, a leading world FX broker, has just announced its operational results for July 2013 and it turns out that the company has what to be proud of: there was an extreme year-on-year increase in both retail and institutional volumes, as well as a steep rise in the number of client accounts.

Retail over-the-counter (OTC) trading volumes amounted to $141.7 billion in July, a surge of 49.2% against the same month a year earlier. Institutional trading volumes saw an even more impressive year-on-year rise of 124%, to $352 billion. The volume increase marked a continuation of a tendency that we already observed in June 2013, when FOREX.COM announced a 56% spring in retail volumes and a 173% jump in institutional volumes.
On the gloomier side, there was a fall of 8.5% in retail volumes from June 2013, and a 4.2% decrease in institutional volumes on a monthly basis. However, the monthly fall size is negligible and, moreover, it could be attributed to seasonal factors – the traditional summer slowdown, for example. 
In addition to the robust results in terms of volumes, the broker also registered an year-on-year rise of 6% in the number of its active retail OTC accounts to 64,793, while the month-on-month rise was an 1.0%. As you see, FOREX.COM has proven once again to be quite attractive for retail traders.
