Retail Forex Volumes at FXCM Grow 26% M/M in January

FXCM, the major US Forex broker, has just reported its operating metrics for the first month of 2014, with retail trading volumes staging a steep rise month-on-month. 
 
Retail Forex volumes for January 2014 amounted to $342 billion, marking a jump of 26% against levels from December 2013. This is indeed a very good reading for the company, as it strikes a much more upbeat note than in the last month of 2013 when the volumes traded by retail clients were down month-on-month reflecting subdued volatility. Moreover, the retail volumes reading is way higher than the $212.5 billion registered by one of FXCM's main rivals in the United States – FOREX.Com
 
Somewhat surprisingly, the retail volumes were down on an annual basis- the levels in January 2014 were 6% weaker than in January 2013. The annual comparisons were dismal in respect of average retail client trades per day – they amounted to 411,459, down by 5% year-on-year. And yet, the reading was up by 11% against the December 2013 reading. 
 
Tradeable accounts at the end of last month reached 189,610, a marginal rise of 1,480 accounts (1%) from the preceding month and a rise of 503 accounts from the number seen in January last year. 
 
And now let's take a look at the operating metrics of the institutional segment: the institutional customer trading volume in January 2014 reached massive $184 billion – a rise of 26%  from levels seen in December 2013 and a jump of 59% from the readings recorded in January 2013. We see that this part of FXCM's business is gradually and stably gaining power. 
 
Below you can see the official press release by the broker.
