Invast Securities Reports Weak Business Metrics Again in May

Following on from a weak month in April, the broker has noted even weaker results in May.

Following on from a weak performance in April, Invast Securities, a retail broker headquartered in Japan, has reported its operating results for the month of May.

The month of April was a sluggish month for the foreign exchange (forex) industry on a global scale, with low volatility dragging trading volumes down. In May, however, many trading providers have reported an uptick in trading volumes.

Invest Securities, however, is not among the firms that reported a recovery in May. In fact, its results in May are even weaker than that in April. Specifically, the company reported operating revenue of  ¥381 million ($3.5 million).

Not only is this lower than April’s operating revenue of  ¥382 million by 0.3 percent, but it is also the lowest operating revenue reported since September of 2018 – taking away the title from the previous month.
