Institutional metrics

Whilst the retail FX volumes continue to make substantial rises, GAIN Capital’s institutional business experienced a minor downturn of 0.9% in total institutional trading volume to $437.6 billion, compared with $441.5 billion in September 2014. This can be considered a mere leveling off of rising fortunes, however, as last month represented a giant 28.1% increase in institutional volumes compared with August 2014, therefore rendering this month’s figure of no concern to the company. Furthermore, this figure represents an increase of 49.7% from October 2013.
