FreshForex, an offshore forex brokerage house, reported on Wednesday a good performance of its clients in December 2016 as 65% of all trades were profitable last month. Within the group of clients with deposit exceeding $3,000, those who closed the month at a profit accounted to 48.84% of all.
In comparison, a month earlier profitable clients totaled 64% and some 39% of clients with deposit over $3,000 were successful.
Last month the market showed high volatility boosted by the Italian constitutional referendum, OPEC’s decision to cut oil output, and US Fed interest rate raise by 0.25%, the broker noted in a statement.
In December, the highest profit growth was more than 497%. The investor traded in currency pairs and shares and increased his/her bonus by using FreshForex’ Tradable Bonus 101% campaign. Meanwhile, the most successful trader last month invested in majors and metals and earned $153,177. The highest profit generated from a single trade amounted to $11,686 and was the result of trading short positions in XAU/USD for less than a full day.
The worst December result, on the other hand, was a loss of $162,330 generated by trading on major and exotic currency pairs. The worst trade of the month was long XAU/USD position of 12 lots resulting in a loss of $25,672 for about two days.
The broker’s active client performed 1,248 trades last month on EUR/USD and was fully manual, without the use of any Expert Advisors (EAs).
