When we talk about Japan, we immediately think of a country that is particularly advanced in terms of technology. The field of binary options is no exception. Especially since the Japanese are particularly fond of online speculation. As a result, the country of the rising sun is at the top of the list of the most active countries in terms of online trading.
Nevertheless, despite rather substantial volumes, September still shows a certain decline in trading in binary options… Point on this market, which seems to be at a standstill in September 2015 in Japan.
Binary options in Japan
For the month of September 2015, the Japanese binary options market recorded an investment volume of approximately €355 million. Even if this figure seems quite substantial, this sector has been stagnating for a few months now in the country of the rising sun. It is even lower than the volume in July and August 2015.
In any case, neither should we extrapolate, this situation does not mean that the market for binary options is on the decline on the Japanese side. Better still, this situation may well reflect the current global economic context…
The Japanese market, a real reference
It should be noted that fluctuations in Japanese financial speculation are always interesting. In the world of trading, the Japanese market is considered as a real reference or even an indicator. Analysing volumes and figures would indeed make it possible to obtain an overall trend with regard to binary options, among other things.
It should be noted, in fact, that no statistics are published on the European side: it is quite difficult if not impossible to measure the health of binary options in this part of the world.
Returning to Japan, the decline is in the order of 20% compared to the same period in 2014. This is nevertheless quite important and deserves some attention. Nevertheless, this is not yet the time for conclusions, but rather for vigilance: traders should take a close look at the evolution of binary options in Japan.
Japan: a small paradise for brokers
Whatever happens on the Japanese side, this market is currently attracting increasing interest from duly regulated European brokers. Among the brokers who have launched themselves, we can mention reference platforms such as Any Option or Interactive Option. Asian traders are a particularly attractive target for generating sales outside Europe.
