RISK WARNING: Our service includes products that are traded on margin and carry a risk of losses in excess of your deposited funds. The products may not be suitable for all investors. Please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved.
Trading accounts offer spreads plus mark-up pricing. Spreads are variable and are subject to delay. Experienced traders can generally trade with up to 200:1 leverage. Leverage ratio could vary depending on the account’s equity level. Traders that are new to FX and CFD trading will be defaulted to 50:1 leverage.
Compensation: When executing customers' trades, FXCM can be compensated in several ways, which include, but are not limited to: spreads, charging fixed lot-based commissions at the open and close of a trade, adding a markup to the spreads it receives from its liquidity providers for certain account types, and adding a markup to rollover, etc.
Execution Disclaimer: FXCM is your counterparty to every transaction. FXCM aggregates bid and ask prices from a pool of liquidity providers and is the final counterparty when trading forex/CFD on FXCM's trading platform. Note: Contractual relationships with liquidity providers are consolidated through the FXCM Group, which, in turn, provides technology and pricing to the group affiliate entities.
