EXNESS Group today announced a trading volume of US$599.3 billion for Q3 2015. Despite a year-on-year growth compared to the same period last year, the performance of Q3 still shows a 9% decline compared to Q2's trading volume of US$660.5 billion.
On top of Q3 being a quieter period, the high volatility of the stock market proved to be a huge draw for clients and is a factor that led to reduced interest in forex trading. Most conservative clients also preferred to re-orientate their portfolios toward fixed-income instruments amid a period of uncertainty over the tightening of monetary policy in the US and the future growth rates of the Chinese economy.
Looking ahead to Q4 2015, EXNESS Group is expecting growth in volatility of the forex market. Additionally, the Group foresees an increase in trading volume due to the possibility of the ECB and Bank of Japan expanding their asset purchase programs, as well as a hike in key interest rate in the US in December.
George Tsaparillas, Director of Global Strategy and Business Development at EXNESS Group, comments: "The company's consistent efforts and commitment towards transparency in the sector are being honoured by its clients. This is reflected in the company's steady and maintained growth over the last few years. EXNESS Group is committed to continue its campaign for transparency and honesty, and at the same time, constantly improve the trading experience of its clients."
