GMO Click Holdings Inc (TYO:7177), the parent company of Japanese online trading giant GMO Click Securities, earlier today published data about its financial performance in August 2015, with the numbers showing the best result for the summer.
Operating revenues at GMO Click amounted to JPY 2.55 billion ($21.1 million) in August 2015, up 7.1% from the result of JPY 2.38 billion registered in July 2015, when the company apparently felt the impact of the traditional summer slowdown in trading activity. The August 2015 result was the best for the past summer, but still lagged behind revenue levels seen earlier this year.
August 2015 saw a steep increase in market volatility towards its end, with this affecting trading activity, volumes and respective financial metrics. And yet, GMO Click Securities failed to deliver any positive news in terms of operating metrics in August, as OTC Forex volumes the broker reported for last month amounted to JPY 112.53 trillion ($936.9 billion), down 0.4% from JPY 112.94 trillion recorded in July 2015.
