FXCM's Breaks Its Own Record for Retail Forex Volumes... Again

Jul 16 2013
By
Forexbrokerz.com

So far the year has been good for FXCM. Last month the broker reported record trading volumes – and in June the numbers are even higher: the retail trading volumes reached $396 billion

 
This increase corresponds to a 1% growth compared to the May 2013, and a 25% rise on year-on-year basis. 
 
The number of active retail accounts has dropped by 3% from May but this doesn't seem to be concerning, given that the traders who have remained active make up for it by trading more. Besides, with 190,998 tradable accounts, FXCM is still one of the largest brokers globally, and does a great job keeping its customers happy (a recent survey placed the brokerage as America's preferred forex provider).  
 
While the retail division of the brokerage is thriving, the institutional business sees a slight decline in volumes; nonetheless 4% decrease in institutional transactions is not worrisome, as retail trading is FXCM's stronger arm anyway.
 
What's more, the broker has set eye on expanding its Asian operations, and set foot in China – so it is likely that we keep reporting about new record trading volumes achieved by the company in the near future. 
 
Read FXCM's full report on its June 2013 operational metrics below.
