Online trading rebounds after Nikkei surge

Volume of online trading in Japan is increasing as individual investors jump onto the stock market boom that started emerging in November. Japanese top online securities firms saw average daily trading value soaring by more than 70 percent in January from the previous month. Those firms include SBI Securities Co., Rakuten Securities Inc., Monex Inc., Matsui Securities Co. and Kabu.com Securities Co.

The average daily trading volume at those five firms increased up to 870.7B JPY in the month. The volume is the same level as that before Lehman Shock in 2008.
