February’s decremental performance compared with that of January still generated an upturn in the value of GAIN Capital shares
Despite GAIN Capital’s overall decrement in trading volumes during February compared with the previous month’s results, the company’s share price (NYSE:GCAP) has made a step in the other direction, depicting a 6% increase since close of business yesterday, subsequent to the release of the company’s metrics for February this year.
Indeed, a great many factors can influence the real time value of corporate stock, and whilst in the case of publicly traded firms, performance is paramount as a yardstick by which to measure share value, it is important to consider that whilst the company experienced less trading volume across all segments of its business during February, those seeking to delve into the historic data will note that the company’s average daily volumes had increased by 17.9% in February this year compared to one year previous, and that the firm was responsible for 62.3% more active retail OTC accounts during February 2014 than the amount of active accounts in February 2013.
