In July, Alpari’s trading turnover amounted to 106.1bn USD, matching the highest monthly value in the first half of 2017. The most popular instrument among traders during this time was the EURUSD currency pair, whose turnover was almost identical to last month’s. The most positive dynamics during the reference period were seen on the USDCAD, AUDUSD and EURCHF pairs. In addition to this, the turnover on the “FX Minors” and “FX Exotics” instruments grew by a total of 9% in July.
The launch of Bitcoin CFDs on all ECN accounts at the beginning of July marked an important event for many of Alpari’s clients around the world. In addition to this, during this summer, Alpari added the CryptA Capital investment portfolio to its product line, which consists of today’s most popular and liquid cryptocurrencies; Bitcoin (40%), Litecoin (30%), and Ethereum (30%). Demand for this instrument continues to rise thanks to an attractive risk-to-return ratio.
