Management Commentary
"Market volatility across major asset classes was significantly lower in Q1 2017," said Glenn Stevens, Chief Executive Officer.  "In particular, there was a narrowing of average trading ranges, which resulted in a sharp decrease in retail revenue per million to approximately 40% below our trailing twelve month levels," Mr. Stevens continued.  "Market conditions and customer engagement improved in March and we continue to believe that the presence of macro-economic uncertainty, combined with the incremental contribution made by recently acquired FXCM accounts, positions GAIN favorably as we move forward throughout the year."
