Here’s the summary of the most interesting data (some are known facts some aren’t):
- At the end of 2010 FXCM had 175,240 active accounts (Standard and Micro), 25% growth from 2009
- Retail Trading Revenue per Million reached the magic $100 number, up 20% from 2009. That’s 1 full pip.
- Daily Average Revenue Trades were 315,210, down 9% from 2009, mainly due to steep decline in volume in North America and South Korea.
- Overall 2010 volume was $3178 Billion, that’s $264 Billion a month. Down 9% from 2009.
- Customer balance was $641 million, almost double the 2009 figure of $354 million.
- FXCM Pro (FXCM’s Currenex White Label) revenue was $27.8 million, up 32% from 2009. FXCM Pro 2010 volume was $753 billion, that’s $63 billion a month. Up 43% from 2009.
- CFDs represented only 3% of the 2010 volume and Spread Betting accounted for only 1%.
- FXCM is seeking a local registered agent in Singapore to transfer its local business to, after reviewing the local regulations. This represents about 1% of its business.
