In December 2020, the retail forex industry witnessed solid growth in all three major areas of customer-related operations covered by our cyclical analysis. At the same time, 2020 came to an end marking an overall annual improvement over 2019.
The first thing that stands out in the December data, shared with Finance Magnates Intelligence by cPattern, is growth in account funding values. The average single deposit to accounts grew from $2,423.14 to $2,738.20. Even bigger growth was registered in the case of withdrawals where single pay-outs from accounts grew from $2,788.60 to a level of $3,286.34.
However, the most impressive improvement was seen in the First Time Deposits(FTD) value, which in December skyrocketed from $1,849.03 to $3,348.30. What is interesting is that the first two places in the FTD rank were taken by Asian countries, Hong Kong and Taiwan, with results of $4,755.00 and $4,384.70, respectively. Maybe even more interesting is the fact that Brazil, the country with a challenging regulatory situation, was third with an average FTD at $4,311.80.
