"Q3 2016 was marked by lower volatility and narrow average true ranges for many products, which resulted in lower customer engagement and a decrease of GAIN's quarterly retail revenue per million of nearly 30% below our 1H 2016 levels," remarked Glenn Stevens, Chief Executive Officer. "The decline in volatility and customer engagement impacted much of the retail industry with GAIN and its competitors showing significant declines in quarterly volumes. However, we have seen a significant increase in volatility and engagement in early October and expect this to continue over the course of Q4 and into FY 2017 as a result of Brexit concerns, the US presidential election and continued uncertainty relating to global interest rates," concluded Mr. Stevens.
