LeapRate Updates its Online Forex Industry Report

LeapRate is pleased to announce the first major update to our Online Forex Industry Report, which we originally published in December 2010. For those of our clients who purchased the original report, you should have already received the update.

What is new in the update?

Market size – we have revised (downward) our estimate of the global online Forex market, from $194 billion in daily volume to $172 billion. The downward revision follows on reports of lower trading volumes at several firms worldwide in the second half of 2010 and/or so far in 2011 (such as at Saxo Bank, FXCM, FxPro, FXOnline Japan, among others), and the implementation of leverage restrictions in the US and Japan.

Valuations – we have added a page comparing public and M&A valuations for Forex companies.

As well, we’ve updated the:

  • list of financings and M&A transactions in the Forex sector from 2005 to present,
  • list of leading Forex firms by region and estimated current trading volumes,
  • all tables and charts in the report, as appropriate, and
  • Company Summaries for Saxo Bank, IG Group, FXCM, Gain Capital, FxPro and AvaFX.
