Finance Magnates Intelligence Unit Debuts Improved Quarterly Reports in Q2

We have fine-tuned our research methodology, providing readers with even more accurate and focused data.

There is an old Chinese curse – ‘may you live in interesting times’. Well, we do live in interesting times and it’s not necessarily a bad thing. One of the interesting events that made this quarter was the British EU referendum, one that had a significant effect on virtually all segments of the financial sphere.

This event, at first a question and then an exclamation mark, has shaken the markets in a way not seen since the SNB crisis of 2015. Having said that, unlike in the case of the Swiss franc, the all-encompassing consequences of this historical event have yet to be seen.

In the retail forex segment, almost the entire industry witnessed lower volumes than in Q1. On the other hand, the number of active traders has actually grown. Many attribute both trends to the anticipated Brexit, which brought both caution to some traders and a sense of opportunity to others.

The regulatory cat and mouse game continued with an increasing number of fines and penalties being issued to the alleged wrongdoers by the North American, Australian and majority of European regulators. Additionally, CySEC has continued to withdraw from its easy going image and issued a circular that has drastically changed the way binary options brokers can market to their customers.

Better for you

The Finance Magnates Intelligence unit has continued its journey to fortify its status as the leading knowledge provider in the trading industry. This time around, we have improved our methodology regarding the quarterly volumes report of the retail and institutional forex markets. One example is the segmentation between the forex and CFDs trading, providing our readers with even more accurate and focused data.

We have also expanded our retail forex ranking to introduce more brokers to the list. This trend will increase in the upcoming reports, as we work harder to bring you more valuable information.

Aside from that, this issue of the report is dedicated to the Chinese financial market. In the upcoming issues, each time we will focus on a region, or a segment of the financial industry, providing you with a more in-depth and complex picture.

I highly recommend that everyone follows the publications of the intelligence unit on the Finance Magnates website. We are preparing various indices with some unique data on the industry.

I also urge you to increase contact between us. If you have any issue that, in your opinion, deserves a special inquiry – please write to us!
