Japanese forex brokerage Invast Securities said on Friday its operating revenue increased by a monthly 13.8% to JPY 239 million in September 2016. The figure, however, represents a drop of 28.2% compared to the same month a year earlier.
The broker started 2016 rather strong with monthly operating revenues of more than JPY 300 million, but over the course of the year its metrics have been deteriorating. In August its operating revenue hit JPY 210 million, the lowest monthly generated since August 2014.
Invast Securities’ deposited margin, on the other hand, saw a slight improvement, increasing 2.2% from the previous month to JPY 67.7 billion. In the preceding three months, the margin stood at slightly more than JPY 67 million.
Following are more detailed about the broker’s monthly metrics since the beginning of 2016 (in JPY millions):
In comparison, GMO Click, another Japanese forex brokerage group, reported earlier on Friday an operating revenue of some JPY 2.5 billion in September, which represents a growth of 36.8% from August (one of its poorest months in the recent past) and a drop of 10.1% compared to a year earlier.
