January 2017’s lower levels indicated that more trading accounts suffered monthly losses than in December 2016, which had reported a figure of 77.98 percent, corresponding to a marginal rise of less than 1.0 percent month-over-month.

The tepid rise also snapped a monthly consecutive decrease in this figure, which had fallen to the lowest level since August 2016. In terms of volatility, January 2017 also saw an uptick in volatility, given a return to normalized trading conditions after a seasonal slowdown – the markets grappled with the first month of Donald Trump’s administration in the US, which has sparked a number of moves.

In addition to this figure, 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 96.12 percent in January 2017, virtually unchanged month-over-month from 96.51 percent in December 2016.

GMO Click also recently reported its FX metrics across its Click 365 and FX Neo segments last week – during January 2017, GMO Click’s FX average daily trading volumes came in at ¥88.12 trillion ($778.8 billion), down 4.0 percent month-over-month from ¥91.82 trillion ($81.15 billion) in December 2016. The latest reading is the lowest since October 2016, which had experienced multiple months of consecutive growth.
