GAIN Capital Records Jump in Forex Volumes in September

GAIN Capital, the financial giant which owns US Forex broker, has just published the data for its operations for September 2013, with a set of steep rises recorded in almost all aspects, including Forex volumes and accounts.

Let's kick off with what's the strongest part of's business model – institutional FX, where the company posted a total trading volume of $278.9 billion, up by massive 51.6% against September 2012. And although we are accustomed to seeing rises on an annual basis, the company reported a rise in institutional volumes on a monthly basis too, with the result for September 2013 being 3.1% higher than the one recorded in August 2013.
And now let's take a look at how the retail Forex volumes performed: the picture is stable here too, with retail over-the-counter trading volumes amounting to $129.9 billion, up by 5.5% from August 2013 and impressive 45% higher than in September last year. The number of active retail accounts also gave the company a reason to be proud, rising by 61.6% from August 2013 (wow!) and by 78.4%  from September 2012, to 105,536.
The single disappointing metric was the number of futures Daily Average Revenue Trades (DARTs) which fell by 8.1% year-on-year to 11,354.
On the brighter side, GAIN has plenty to boast, apart from the set of robust metrics. It was in September that the group managed to finalize the acquisition of Global Futures & Forex Ltd (GFT). The September results include results from seven days of GFT's operations.
