Japan’s largest brokerage GMO CLICK Securities has just posted its monthly metrics ending in June 2015. The total GMO CLICK volumes reached in June 2015 was ¥1.342 trillion, an increase of 29.6% over the same figure from May 2015.
On a yearly comparison the jump in volumes figures is even more impressing, increasing by a whopping 201% from June 2014’s ¥445.823 billion. Partly explaining the monthly rise in volumes, there were only a total of 18 trading days in May due to Japanese holidays, compared to 22 trading days in June 2015.
The value of exchange traded contracts during the month also increased in June to ¥591 billon.
