Alpari’s trading turnover for the first of the summer months stood at $78.7 billion. Practically all of the fall in this indicator in comparison with last month’s figures came from the most popular currency pairs: EURUSD and GBPUSD. As earlier announced by us and other Forex brokers, trading conditions for these financial instruments were altered for the period of time where uncertainty shot up sharply due to the UK referendum.
Another important factor to mention is that other currency pairs saw, conversely, a significant rise in turnover last month. For example, the popular USDJPY trading instrument rose by 6% and XAUUSD rose by 34%, reaching its record level that was last reached in September of 2014.
In June, one of the companies operating under the Alpari brand in Belarus – Alpari Eurasia Ltd. – received licensing from the National Bank of the Republic of Belarus, meaning that the company is able to service citizens of the republic. For us to receive the licensing is very positive news and a real landmark moment for the development of the financial industry within this country.
