Not all metrics were improving for Saxo Bank in June. After going up the previous two months, the clients’ collateral deposits for trading went ever so slight down to $11.41 billion. The figure seems to have peaked at $11.46 billion in May 2015, the highest such figure ever, passing November 2014’s record of $11.37 billion.
During June Saxo Bank launched its new proprietary platform, SaxoTraderGO, to its traders worldwide. It will be interesting to see if the broker’s volumes will show any significant change in the coming months now that it distanced itself from the popular MT4 platform.
