Online platforms include services including online trading in stocks (shares), bonds, international currencies, and other financial commodities. The growing technology advancements coupled with the introduction of new trading software in the industry are anticipated to drive the growth of the online trading platform market. For instance, in January 2021, Binomo launched its online platform that has real-time forecasting & analysis. The platform consists of over 900,000 brokers from 130 countries. Moreover, in January 2021, Deutsche Bank partnered with Sharekhan Ltd. in order to develop & introduce DB TradePro, an online trading platform.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a huge negative impact on the global economy. As the virus spread, a large number of businesses were shut down, out of which most were small businesses, but large businesses were impacted too. These effects of the COVID-19 outbreak are leading nations as well as the global economy towards recession. Due to this, the reduced consumer and institutional spending are anticipated to hinder the growth of the online trading platform market. WTO (World Trade Organization) predicts a fall in foreign trade between 13 to 32 % amid the pandemic.

The increasing health problems, reducing income, and the reduction in resources explain the possible outcomes. Most of the trade data may not show the negative impact of the pandemic yet; however, some predicted the scale of recession as per the previous crises. Furthermore, based on the pre-pandemic growth forecast, United Nations ESCAP (Economic & Social Commission for the Asia Pacific) projects that Asia Pacific will lose over USD 2.2 trillion in trade.

Additionally, the S&P 500 index fell by 20% in three weeks and then dropped another 30% in 30 days. Similarly, from February 20th to 9th March, the US Treasury note yield dropped from 1.52% to 0.54%. In conclusion, the virus outbreak negatively impacted trade and reduced foreign investment globally.
