As for the month ending May 2015, total trade turnover in Russia and the CIS countries saw an increase of almost 4% MoM to over $95 billion, up from $91.4 billion in April 2015. Alpari RU pointed to steadfast growth across the EUR/USD and GBP/USD currency pairs, which orchestrated a jump of 11% and 15% MoM respectively in May 2015.
Despite the tepid rise in volumes, not every aspect of Alpari RU’s business has been on the uptick as of late. As recently as March, Alpari RU and its international units terminated an offering of almost all CFDs (contracts for difference) then available to their clients, citing low demand.
