Western Countries lead FXStreet’s Traffic Increase in 2015

Hi everyone

This morning I was reviewing traffic data for FXStreet.com main site – English version – and I was wondering if there’s been a change in our traffic by country in the last year as during this period we have experienced an important increase of unique users. Comparing data from March 29th to April 28th 2015 with March 30th to April 29th 2014 I noticed a nice increase of 28.40% in unique visitors from 491k to 630k.

March 29th to April 28th 2015 vs. March 30th to April 29th 2014 Traffic Data
Sessions 16.43%

2,410,222 vs 2,070,052
Users 28.40%
630,942 vs 491,395
Pageviews 5.90%
6,522,859 vs 6,159,477

Analyzing the data by country, I noticed that the new traffic added last year came mostly from western countries like United States, United Kingdom, Australia and Canada, while in Asia we saw Singapore and Malaysia gaining ground, Hong Kong stuck while loosing traffic in India, Pakistan and Indonesia.

So taking only in consideration our data, it seems that the increase of interest in FX seen in 2015 is strongly lead by western countries traders while Asian traders are quite lagging behind

Interesting….
