Japanese broker DMM Securities set another record as it has released its May trading volumes. For the month, total volume was $788.5 billion, 3.5% above the previous all-time high of $761.5 billion set last month. The figures for the world’s second largest retail forex broker by volume comes after similar records were reported from GMO Click and FXCM last week. Japanese brokers continue to see an expansion of their businesses thanks to volatile trading in the yen. Looking ahead, June volumes are expected to remain strong as public venues announced daily volume records last week as the yen had another wild day of trading.
