Retail Forex broker Alpari Ru earlier today posted its operating metrics for May 2015, with the results surprisingly robust, given that last month was full of holidays in Russia, a factor which normally leads to lower trading volumes. In the face of that, Alpari Ru said the trading turnover in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) increased in both annual and monthly terms.
Alpari Ru registered Forex volumes of $95.2 billion in May 2015, which is 4% higher than the result of $91.4 billion registered in April 2015.
The May 2015 achievement also surpassed the result from May 2014, when Alpari saw Forex volumes in Russia and CIS of $93.3 billion.
The company attributed the strong results to higher trading turnover in EUR/USD and GBP/USD – it rose by 11% and 15%, respectively.
The broker also notes the release of its new pro.ecn.mt4 accounts, which are available in demo mode at this point, but will soon be rolled out for live trading.
