After a less active April, Finance Magnates Intelligence examined the CPattern data for May, to find an interesting change. Shortly before the summer break, retail investors were back in front of their devices, trading more than usual.

The total average monthly deposits grew to $14,630 from $11,360. Thus, a new record was seen in our data. The previous highest average deposit value was, seen in February, $14,482.

While the May result is not the highest one in our history, it shows the growing activity of retail traders. April’s result has been the lowest identified in the last 12 months.
