GAIN Capital completed May 2013 on a very strong footing, further demonstrating the return to form for most of the industry’s big players after a lackluster 2012 which was plagued by contracting volumes.

June is the second month since GAIN Capital introduced publicly available monthly metrics, providing a comprehensive method of comparing performance on a month-to-month basis. Certainly the increases in volume over May’s figures are substantial, with volume rising from $145.8 billion to $161.5 billion, and a distinct improvement over that of May last year, demonstrated by a 28% increase in volume.
