Alpari clients in Russia and the CIS traded a total of 788.5 billion USD in volume over the first half of 2013, including 405.8 billion USD in the second quarter. These are the highest quarterly and half-year volume numbers we’ve seen at our company since it was founded in 1998.
Compared to the second half of 2012, our trading volume for the first 6 months of 2013 is up 67%. Our quarterly results in 2013 have been just as impressive – our company set a new quarterly volume record in the first quarter of 2013, and then followed that up with another record-setting second quarter. The volume numbers are just as impressive when measured in lots: Alpari has recorded 5 consecutive months of trading in excess of 1 million lots.
"It’s clear that Alpari’s recent success is no coincidence. In the first half of the year, our company significantly improved its trading terms, added additional sources of liquidity for clients, increased the quality of order execution and optimized its lineup of trading accounts, investment accounts and financial services. Clients also continue to show a great deal of interest in our ready-made portfolios of PAMM Accounts and structured products. Finally, our company is finding better ways to reach out to people, as is demonstrated by our recent inflow of new customers. At the beginning of July, we were nearing 900,000 trading accounts among clients in Russia and the CIS," said Boris Shilov, CEO of Alpari.
