Sydney, Australia -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/08/2013 -- LCG Markets, a leading MetaTrader 4 broker and the international trading arm of UK based London Capital Group (LCG), who are publicly listed on the London Stock Exchange, has seen a dramatic increase in client numbers in January, fuelled largely by the booming world markets.
Ashley Jessen, Director at LCG Markets had this to say, “Forex markets have been trending fantastically and world indices are having a dream run, with the Aussie 200 Index recently enjoying 10 positive closes in a row, which hasn’t happened since October 2003. Traders are riding this momentum and chat rooms are abuzz with positive talk about recent gains as markets hit an extreme in positive sentiment.”
“Our Australian operation had the second highest number of new trading accounts in a month since May 2011 and triple the number of live accounts compared to January 2012. Positive sentiment and trending markets across both Forex and worldwide Indices are definitely driving traders back into the markets and we are loving the ability to offer our award winning commissions, spreads and customer service to those looking to jump back into the markets,” commented Jessen.
“Technically there have been extremely strong trends seen across all pairs against the Japanese Yen, especially AUD/JPY, GBP/JPY and EUR/JPY. Traders on our books did not miss a beat, pushing the EUR/JPY to the 3rd most actively traded product on our books in January, with 10% of all trades on the EUR/JPY with the bias sitting at 79% of trades long.” Ashley noted.
Jessen added, “Flexibility and the ability to follow trends tend to be two key characteristics of winning traders and in January the markets were heavily focused on the moves against the Japanese Yen. The beauty of being a trader is being able to use systems that identify trending markets and being flexible to locate those trade opportunities to meet certain criteria and we can see that is the case among our traders as they gravitated to the EUR/JPY.”
