The above figure indicates that slightly fewer accounts incurred monthly losses in January 2016 than in the previous month, which registered a figure of only 78.02% back in December 2015. Despite the rescinding figure, the proportion of binary options losses remains fairly high, compared to a peak of 80.31% set back in March 2015. The loss was also unable to retrace back to a November figure of just 73.86%, indicating that trading losses remain firm.
In addition, GMO Click’s Ladder Options, a legal type of options available for trading in Japan, saw the total transaction amount as a percentage of the total client payment amount reach 99.16% in January 2016, compared to just 95.81% back in December 2015.
