US FX retail brokers: latest data Dec/2014

Postby michal.kreslik » Thu Feb 19, 2015 5:26 pm

CFTC released monthly financial reports for US futures commission merchants and retail foreign exchange dealers. The following is the state as of Dec/31/2014 (US retail FX brokers only):

Total Amount of Retail Forex Obligation: This represents the total amount of funds at the firm that would be obtained by combining all money, securities and property deposited by a retail forex customer into a retail forex account or accounts, adjusted for the realized and unrealized net profit or loss.

The above figures represent the status quo roughly two weeks before the Swiss army knife - the biggest intraday shock on a major currency in the history of the forex market. Thus I'm quite curious to see how the numbers in the next reporting month (January 2015) turn out for these firms.
