Alpari Russia has just released its February 2015 turnover in Russia and the CIS countries. Coming in at just $74.7 billion, the figure is 15% lower than January as volatility post-SNB decision has decreased.
The broker explained that the reduction in turnover in February compared to January 2015, was primarily due to the significant lack of directional movement in the market on the main currency pair for its traders, the EUR/USD.
