December’s mitigated losses indicated that fewer trading accounts had suffered monthly losses than in November 2016, which had reported a figure of 79.36%, or a fall of approximately -1.7% MoM and the lowest figure since August 2016. In terms of volatility, December was much more subdued, due in part to seasonal lulls and a lack of major market drivers, relative to the month prior.
Moreover, 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 96.51% in December 2016, virtually unchanged MoM from 96.00% in November 2016.
GMO Click also recently reported its FX metrics across its Click 365 and FX Neo segments last week, which saw a fairly large decline MoM in terms of its volumes. GMO Click’s over-the-counter (OTC) FX trading volumes came in at ¥109.8 trillion, down -17.2% from ¥132.6 trillion in November 2016, influenced heavily by the decline in volatility from November.
