FXCM August Single Share & Stock Baskets Report

·4 min read

LONDON, Sept. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FXCM Group, LLC (“FXCM Group’ or ‘FXCM’), the leading international provider of online foreign exchange trading, CFD trading, cryptocurrencies and related services, is today releasing its data of most popular instruments for the month of August in its Single Share CFD and proprietary Stock Basket product lines.

FXCM offers fractional, single share CFD trading with no commission fees* on leading companies from the US, UK, France, Germany, Hong Kong and, following its July launch, Australia. FXCM’s stock basket products combine the shares of multiple companies from one sector into a single tradeable instrument, and the company currently boasts a portfolio of 14 stock baskets. The list of companies and weightings is available on FXCM’s stock basket website: https://www.fxcm.com/uk/stock-baskets/

For the first time since offering stocks, a non-US share was the most traded instrument at FXCM with Hong Kong based Tencent Holdings slightly pipping Tesla to top the FXCM rankings. It was a big month for HK based instruments on the Basket side too with ATMX (Big China Tech), the Chinese equivalent of FAANG storming its way to number 4 on the Basket rankings, eclipsing its previous best place by 5 spots along with recording its highest monthly volume since it was first launch in April.

The remaining list saw little major movement among the top traded shares and baskets, with the Big US Tech (FAANG) basket maintaining its spot as the highest traded basket, although one of its index components Facebook (together with Beyond Meat), was one of only two companies to fall out of last month’s top 10.
