Analysis: May Brought Back Retail Trading Activity

After a less active April,
Finance Magnates Intelligence examined the cPattern data for May, to find an
interesting change. Shortly before the summer break, retail investors were back
in front of their devices, trading more than usual.

In the previous month, we found
both the total monthly inflows as well as outflows from the retail accounts registered a decrease. In May, we saw an improvement. The total average monthly
deposits grew to $14,630 from $11,360. Thus, a new record was seen in our data. The previous highest average deposit value was, seen in February, $14,482.

We have also seen some growth in the case of the monthly withdrawals. The average value of monthly withdrawals
grew to $8,146 from $5,221, which was witnessed in April. While the May result is not the
highest one in our history, it shows the growing activity of retail traders. April’s
result has been the lowest identified in the last 12 months.

As we discuss the
activity, it is worth noticing that the most recent data displays growth in the number
of transactions. The average value grew to 285 transactions per trader in May.
In the previous month, there were 239 transactions. This time the most active
traders were in Kuwait with a result of 320 transactions.

Overall, the activity
metrics have kept growing over the last 12 months. This looks interesting as it
may indicate either growth in algo usage or some change in trading patterns.
