Tokyo-based GMO Click Securities, a leading online multi-asset brokerage, today published its May 2016 rankings for its top-ten Contract for Difference (CFD) products across three segments including commodity and equity indices, exchange traded stocks and notes (ETFs and ETNs), and single-stock securities, according to an official statement by the company.
For the 18th consecutive month, first place ranking for index CFDs was held by the company’s Japan 225 offering which tracks the underlying Nikkei 225 index in Japan.
The second most popular CFD product in this segment was the company’s crude oil contract, followed by US30 which aims to track the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Finance Magnates had compared prior changes in the company’s CFD rankings in a related post earlier this year, comparing the changes in rankings from January to February and that have since shifted slightly.
