FXCM enjoys a 14% retail trading volume increase MoM in August

FXCM, the biggest US forex broker, reports positive operating metrics for its retail business for August compared to previous month with a 25% increase of the average customer trading volume. Institutional trading volume, however, is 2% down compared to July but still 22% up YoY.

FXCM is steadily putting distance between its performance and the somehow weak metrics reported in June and July. On yearly basis August operating metrics clearly indicate that the reputable US forex broker is about to rebound from the first half of the year. For example, in June retail customer volume was down 36% YoY. In August it is down only with 2% compared to prior year. Tradable accounts have increased with 8% till August 2013.

Institutional trading wise FXCM has a very good year with trading volume up 22% YoY. The company is highly regarded by many smaller brokers and in July 2014 the institutional traded volume was $262 billion, 42% higher than in July 2013. That was a record for FXCM.

Retail trading is to be boosted further in the forthcoming future by the recently acquired IBFX’s 13 000 MT4 clients’ accounts. Moreover, this month markets’ volatility is so high so far that we have every right to expect some spectacular results from the forex industry in September.

FXCM’s August operating metric are given below:
