Monex Group reported today its business metrics for the month ending June 2015, showing an impressive comeback for its FX volumes. The monthly trading value for all subsidiaries of Monex Group Inc totaled $42.1 billion in June, up 22.4% from $34.4 billion in May.
This total FX volumes figure is the highest since February 2015 when the number crashed to just $32.1 billion, and put Monex half way towards January 2015’s $51 billion. At least a part of the Month-on-Month rise in the total FX figure for the Monex Group can be explained by the fact that June had 22 trading days in Japan, compared with only 18 trading days due to Japanese holidays in May.
Other FX trading metrics were also increased somewhat for the Monex Group in June 2015. The total number of over-the-counter(OTC) FX accounts reached 212,705, up from 211,356 in May 2015.
