British financial spreadbetting firm CMC (Shanghai: 600327.SS - news) Markets said first-half profit would be significantly higher than a year earlier, as increased client trading volumes helped offset challenges from a sector-wide regulatory clampdown. The company, set up by Chief Executive Peter Cruddas as a foreign exchange broker with a 10,000 pound investment in 1989, said net operating income and revenue per client in the six months ending Sept. 30 were higher than a year earlier. "The firm remains cautious about the future outlook given the ongoing regulatory uncertainty and the impact, if any, potential changes could have on Group performance," CMC said in a statement on Thursday.

Foreign exchange trading through online retail brokers fell by just over 3 percent in the first quarter of 2017, driven chiefly by a fall-off for the massive Japanese firms who dominate the global trade, industry data showed on Wednesday. The data from industry researchers Finance Magnates Business Intelligence (www.financemagnates.com) showed volumes falling to the equivalent of $356 billion a day, down from $368 billion in the last quarter of 2016 and $364 billion a year ago. The boost to volatility from U.S. and French elections since late last year, however, has helped prop up non-Japanese brokers including IG Group as they battle through a clampdown on regulation of the sector in Europe and the United States.

The U.S. vote, which could come as early as Thursday, is seen as a litmus test of Trump's ability to push through legislation, including more market sensitive plans to cut tax, boost spending and deregulate banks. "Investors will have to wait for the outcome of today's vote for the market's next move," said Peter Rosenstreich, head of market strategy at Swissquote Bank in Geneva.
