For the month ending January 2017, Invast disclosed its operating revenues at $3.38 million (¥381 million), up 40.1 percent month-over-month from $2.41 million (¥272 million) in December 2016. Comparing this figure to its 2016 counterpart, the latest revenues were also weaker, higher by 9.5 percent year-over-year from $3.08 million (¥348 million)
January 2017 experienced larger volumes overall and higher trading activity given the uptick of volatility worldwide. A combination of markets snapping out of a seasonal lull and the incoming administration of Donald Trump in the US also helped spark movement across markets.
Finally, Invast also released its total amount of deposited margin, which again edged higher month-over-month in January 2017, albeit by a marginal amount. As such, January 2017 reported $628.9 million (¥70.96 billion), relative to $627.1 million (¥70.76 billion) in December 2016 or virtually unchanged month-over-month. Over a yearly timeframe, this figure was unchanged year-over-year from $627.1 million (¥70.76 billion) in January 2016.
