GAIN Capital volumes up 3.7% MoM to $231.7 billion; institutional rises 40%


GAIN Capital Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: GCAP) today reported volume operating metrics for the month of June 2016. It looks like due to slashing of leverage and increase of margin requirements respectively, June did not provide the boon to volumes we saw at the big Wall Street institutional venues during the EU referendum. Last year “Grexit” also provided heavy volatility in Euro pairs and performed better for the company’s retail segment as per 2015’s results coming in 43.7% higher, when the company provided no margin requirement hikes. See more detailed metrics below:
