The latest ComPeer figures for the first quarter of 2002 show that nervous private investors are still holding back from the market while they await signs of sustained recovery.
The good news is that average daily trading volumes continue to rise compared to the previous quarter and that the number of online accounts being opened is rising again.
However, the average value of online trades continues to fall, and remains well below the value of telephone trades, while online investors are trading on average less than twice per quarter.
APCIMS/ComPeer which compiled the figures says the message, clearly , is that investors are still "watching and waiting".
