Online trading platform market outlook

2020 was a year of surprises. There was the speed at which the pandemic escalated, the severity of the lockdowns, the size of the government stimulus measures globally and the magnitude of the equity market rebounds.

Perhaps the biggest surprise is that global equities, as of late November, have gained around 12% since the beginning of the year—an outcome few would have predicted during a global pandemic.

The unpredictable situations such as the result of an election, new types of viruses, and many more can define financial markets.


It is notable that today’s market is not actually a suitable one for all types of investors as investing itself involves risks.

The one thing we are sure about is that the online platforms are getting more popular day by day, and so is happening for online trading platforms.
