LONDON, June 23, 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 May in their 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 and Hong Kong, whilst FXCM’s stock basket products combine the shares of multiple companies from one sector into a single tradeable instrument. 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/

Following Coinbase’s April IPO, Coinbase stock (COIN.us) quickly rose, in its first full month of trading, to the third most traded single share CFD at FXCM only trailing perennial leaders Tesla and Apple. Over the same period, Facebook, JPMorgan and Tencent Holdings (HK stock) all dropped out of the top ten.

While FAANG components made up three of the top five Single Share places, it was relegated to third most popular stock basket in May, eclipsed in trading volume by both the China Ecommerce and China Technology Basket, which led the volume ranks for the second consecutive month.
