Brussels, Belgium, May 26, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- According to the 1000 active online traders who participated in the survey, the most participative online traders today are generally male who are under the age bracket of 35 and 45. Although, it is not considered unexpected, the new survey result also revealed that almost 25 percent of the online traders are non-US residents with Japanese traders and investors accounted for the highest international traders with 9.6 percent.
According to the CEO and President of the Fortis Global Solutions, Mr. Trey Dewitt, objectivity is the main focus of this year’s investor participation’s survey. The survey is open only for qualified investors to ensure that the opinions gathered are based on their own trading experiences or based on a particular market as a whole and not with non-validated participants’ trading experience. Most members of the survey are basically more active in their trading investments and portfolios, examining the beat of the marketplace through others like themselves.
“As shown in the survey results, 40 percent of the participants listed capital preservations as their main investment trading objective. The result also explained why some investors are looking to the stock market to help them stay connected with the marketplaces. That makes it very important that they collect reliable and trustworthy industry-related information. However, the survey results also claim 8 percent among the respondents who name speculation as their main trading objective; this gives them more cautions in investment. It is very vocal to say that our survey has allowed our investors to be vigilant enough in investing issues,” said Dewitt.
The survey also claimed new market participants with 45 percent of the entire survey respondents said that they have still limited experience in investments. Some of them even claimed the investors’ network as a rare chance of benefiting from the trading knowledge of other investors, a valuable trading resource for a new and self- starter trader and investor.
Dewitt also commented on the changes of the face of average investors. “Online trading is now a global phenomenon as we can see member-participants logging in from almost all continents. We have recognized great numbers of active accounts from international traders like Japanese traders who have accounted 9.6 percent, the leading active international traders. Australia comes in second spot with 6.9 percent, followed by Singapore with 6.7 per cent, Norway with 5.9 percent, Italy with 5.1 percent, China with 4.5 percent and Germany with 4.2 percent of the international clients. Furthermore, investors are becoming young and more informed and that is definitely good news for the entire industry as well as in the global economy in general.”
