GAIN Capital Retail Trading Volume in October Reaches $273.4 Billion, an Increase of 14.4% MoM

The results are mixed however as the total institutional trading volume for GAIN Capital reached only $437.6 billion in October

GAINGAIN Capital Holdings (NYSE:GCAP) has just released its final monthly metrics for October 2014, showing another month of retail growth for the broker. The results are mixed however, as the broker was unable to reach the same institutional volume after the two-digit growth surge in September.

The October metrics are in line with GAIN Capital’s announcement earlier this month, that retail trading volume increased by 16% to $605.4 billion in the third quarter of 2014. The numbers are also in line with what most of GAIN’s competitors achieved during the month.
