Retail Foreign exchange investors increased their deposits in their trading accounts last month. Following a strong month in May, we have seen an increase in the value of monthly average Foreign exchange deposits just before the summer had begun.
First of all, the important thing to note is that statistics for individual one-time deposits showed no increase. The typical average deposit dropped to $2,184.01 in June, down from $2,312.17 in May. On top of that, figures on individual withdrawals were unimpressive, falling to $2,554.18 from $2,773.81. There was also no improvement in first-time deposits (FTD), which were $2,564.27 as opposed to $2,641.40 in May.
The important part of the latest results
Interestingly, overall deposits for the entire month increased. The number of monthly deposits increased to $10,902 in June, up from $9,884 in May. At the very same moment, it was the highest recorded value in 2021. In addition, overall monthly withdrawals from Foreign exchange accounts increased to $5,337 in June, up from $4,977 in May. It will be fascinating to see whether this trend continues in July – August.
The average first-time deposits were all-time highest from November to December. This is also the period of the highest recorded data for the average withdrawals as well.
Meanwhile, it should also be mentioned here that retail Foreign exchange investors’ currency trading activity has already begun to show signs of a usual summer downturn. The median amount of transactions per trader fell to 205.2 in June, down from 219.7 in May. It came as a completely no surprise who was at the top of this list. Once more, another noticeable thing about this issue is the fact that the retail Foreign exchange traders in China completed the most transactions each month.
