JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Dec. 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 November in its Single Share CFD and proprietary Stock Basket product lines.

FXCM offers fractional single share trading with no commission fees* on leading companies from the US, UK, France, Germany, Hong Kong and Australia. 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 16 stock baskets. The list of companies and weightings is available on FXCM’s stock basket website (https://www.fxcm.com/za/stock-baskets/)

There was little change to the FXCM’s top ten during November, with only PayPal making way for Chinese ADR JD.com. Tesla maintained top spot, while Facebook’s delayed ticker change did not detract from trader interest as it pushed its way into second spot, recording its highest volume of the last 12 months.

In a month that saw the launch of two new FXCM Stock Baskets, Uranium and Crypto stocks, it was the two Ecommerce baskets that saw the biggest boost ahead of the festive season. China Ecommerce and US Ecommerce jumped to second and fourth place respectively, trailing behind FAANG which has maintained top spot since June. However, with many Chinese companies threatening delistings from the US, it will be interesting to see what the future entails for the components of the both the China Ecommerce basket and the 5th rank China Technology basket as we approach the new year.
