Conversely to September 2011 where US retail forex deposits shrank by $20 million, in October total amount of retail forex obligations by American FCMs and RFEDs grew by $30 million. It seems there’s quite a volatility month on month in terms of how much money retail forex traders (not only American ones) are holding at the American retail forex brokers. This may be due to variety of reasons such as more aggressive marketing, traders’ profitability, acquisitions, etc.

Biggest gain was by GFT – $12.8 million and Gain Capital – $5.8 million. Biggest loss was FXCM’s – $1.3 million. FC Stone stopped taking Retail forex deposits.
