Notable names such as IG Group, CMC Markets, Swissquote, XTB, Plus500, and NAGA Group shed light on the industry’s dynamics based on their stock market performances.

The year 2023 proved to be generally positive for FX/CFD brokers, marked by increased new client sign-ups, trading volumes, and subsequent growth in revenues and profits. However, the journey was far from smooth, reflecting the competitive nature of the industry, as highlighted in FNG’s Top FX and CFD trading industry news stories of 2023.

Analyzing the data, the average change in the shares of these brokers was modest, with a 0.9% increase – essentially flat. The market, depicted graphically, showcased a mixed landscape, ranging from Swissquote’s impressive 53% share price rise to CMC’s significant 53% drop.

Understanding the performance of these publicly traded brokers requires considering the broader equity market context. The FTSE 100 Index in Europe remained nearly flat with a 2% increase, while the S&P500 Index in the US experienced a robust 25% rise, and Germany’s DAX saw a 19% increase.Swissquote emerged as the leader in 2023, overcoming a mid-March setback with a 15% share price drop. The company’s balanced banking-and-trading offering, coupled with strong 1H-2023 results, contributed to a remarkable 53% share price increase, approaching its 52-week high.

Poland-based XTB had a successful year, with a 22% increase in shares, entering the elite club of brokers boasting a market cap exceeding USD $1 billion.Conversely, Plus500 (-7%), NAGA Group (-7%), and CMC Markets (-53%) faced investor skepticism. NAGA Group’s decline followed an 85% share price collapse in 2022, leading to its acquisition announcement by Capex.com in late December.

Interestingly, the list of publicly traded brokers in 2023 mirrored that of 2022, as ThinkMarkets’ attempt to go public via a SPAC merger was withdrawn toward the year’s end. This move followed similar failed attempts by eToro and Saxo Bank over the past year and a half, canceling SPAC mergers in the US and Europe, respectively.
