Retail Forex broker Alpari Ru earlier today posted its operating metrics for April 2015, with Forex volumes in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) showing a decline in both annual and monthly terms.
In April 2015, Alpari’s trading volumes in Russia and CIS amounted to $91.4 billion, which is 5.7% lower than the $96.9 billion registered in March 2015. The April 2015 result is 14.6% lower than in April 2014.
The company attributed the decline in volumes to lower volatility regarding the most popular trading pair EUR/USD.
On the brighter side, the broker also announced the launch of a demo version of a new ECN account for the MT4 platform. LeapRate has earlier reported on Alpari’s plans to roll out the new accounts, which are product of the collaboration of the broker with AMTS Solutions.
The new accounts are named pro.ecn.mt4 and are already accessible on the Alpari-Pro.ECN-Demo server. Traders are invited to test the advantages of the new product, which include lower spreads and instant execution. There are no limits to trading strategies, like scalping.
