Operations of retail FX broker Alpari continue undeterred by the insolvency procedures at Alpari UK and Alpari Japan, with Alpari Ru keeping up with its everyday log of tasks. Earlier today the company reported its operating metrics for the last month of 2014, with December trading volumes in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) surpassing $90 billion.
The number marks a small decline from the level of $92.1 billion seen in November 2014, with the result partially attributed to the holidays season, which is usually linked to more sluggish trading activity.
Since December put the end to the year, we can also provide you with some data on annual trading volumes – they amounted to $1.249 trillion in Russia and CIS. This gives a monthly average of $104.1 billion, lagging behind the result for 2013.
We are curious to see the operating metrics for January 2015, which will probably reflect the raft of perks Alpari Ru has lately introduced for its clients, including raising of leverage for Rub pairs and eliminating minimum deposit requirements for all types of trading accounts.
