Gain Capital (NYSE:GCAP), the second-largest US forex broker has remained a steady second after FXCM, shows data on February client deposits published on the website of the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).
The monthly report, however, shows that in February the client deposits with the broker dropped by 4.9%, compared to January, to 128.7 million.

At the same time the number of active over-the-counter accounts was 143 673, a little less than in January when they were 143 766. Over the year, however, the number of active accounts rose 47.9%. Gain Capital’s adjusted net capital in February 2016 was $44 961 100.
The data published by the CFTC places Gain Capital consistently at the second place, after FXCM and ahead of Oanda.
