Investors in Britain appear to have lost their appetite for buying and selling shares online, according to the latest research.

Figures produced by ComPeer and published in today's Guardian showed that 648,000 trading orders were placed in Q2, compared to 930,000 in Q1.

The fall has been blamed on the slide in hi-tech shares although online traders are still reporting a rise in the number of people signing up for their services.

Analysts believe that while more people are trading online, they are not as active.
