The aforementioned figure indicates that more trading accounts incurred monthly losses in February 2016 than in the previous month, which registered a figure of only 77.17% back in January 2016, a climb of roughly 1.0% MoM. While the climb is notable at GMO Click, the monthly figure is still off a high set last year at 80.31% in March 2015.
Furthermore, GMO Click’s Ladder Options, a legal type of option available for trading in Japan, reported its total transaction amount as a percentage of the total client payment amount reaching 96.10% in February 2016, declining 99.16% in January 2016. The change in transaction amount shows a 3.1% drop MoM.
GMO Click recently made headlines after it reported its FX trading volumes for February 2016, which surged to $1.45 trillion (¥164.6 trillion) for the month. This correlated to a massive jump of 23.2% MoM from $1.18 trillion (¥133.6 trillion) in January 2015.
