FX Prime, a forex and binaries broker, part of the Japanese GMO Click Holdings (TYO:7177), released data on the June binary options trading revealing the percentage of traders who won and lost money. Data on the trading volume, however, has not been yet released.
According to the report, 70.1% of FX Prime’s customers lost money from binaries trading.

In comparison, in May the share of traders with a negative profit-loss ratio was 73%.
At the same time, the profit and loss percentage of the broker about customer transactions (the amount of option premium paid to the customer plus the payout amount, divided by the amount of the option premium received from customers, multiplied by 100) in June was 97.3%, up from 96.2% in May.
