Desktop Trading Still Overshadows Mobile, Our New Industry Index Shows

After aggregating thousands of data fields, our Intelligence unit sheds light on some of the most crucial trader trends.

If you thought that everyone is only trading on the go these days, you are in for a surprise. Almost three quarters (73.7%) of online trades are still being made on desktop systems, according to the latest Finance Magnates data. However looking at the trend, it seems that mobile has been gaining market share slowly, increasing by about 1% since March, both in Japan and internationally.

This introductory article is offering just the first taste of a series of publications that will present samples from the traffic indices – a new cross-industry benchmark, created with a methodological formula that matriculates data from three main sources: brokers’ trading volumes, brokers’ traffic data, and insider information.
