There’s nothing like volatility to bring traders to markets, and we obviously had that by the bucket load in the first quarter of the year. Gold and oil were notably active markets as Russia invaded Ukraine – at its highest, oil was up 70% for the year so far and we weren’t even three months in. As the quarter came to an end, it did seem as if stock market investors were taking the uncertainty more in their stride, and we saw at least some of the earlier 2022 losses clawed back. Whether they continue to buy the dip next quarter remains to be seen – but from a geo-political and markets point of view, the first quarter of 2022 won’t be one that investors will forget any time soon.

During Q1 2022, crude Oil, the NASDAQ index, Gold, BTC/USD and the DAX index were the top five most traded assets by volume on‘s platform. The company noted that crypto Derivatives are not available to retail clients registered with Capital Com (UK) Ltd.
