Gain Capital Holdings Inc (NYSE:GCAP) has just reported its operating metrics for July 2015, with the numbers showing a small drop in both retail and institutional trading volumes on a monthly basis, but a robust rise in annual terms. This way, the results are broadly in tune with the majority of the Forex industry, obviously reflecting the traditional summer slowdown in trading activity, but also revealing some steady underlying performance.
Also, when comparing the retail FX metrics in monthly terms, we should bear in mind that June 2015 was extraordinarily strong for GAIN, so its achievements would have been hard to beat during any month.
