Spreads & Commissions: Dynamic live streaming spread figures shown are from FXCM’s Best Bid/Best Offer pricing engine. Static historical spread figures are time-weighted averages derived from tradable prices at FXCM from 1 January 2016 to 31 March 2016. Spread figures are for informational purposes only. FXCM is not liable for errors, omissions or delays, or for actions relying on this information.

Accounts set to a commission structure will be charged in the denomination of the account. Commissions are charged at the open and close of trades. Spread Bet, Mini Accounts and those for clients of certain intermediaries are subject to a markup. However, when you choose a Spread Bet or Mini Account you pay no commissions.

Compensation: When executing customers' trades, FXCM can be compensated in several ways, which include, but are not limited to: 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. Under the Dealing Desk execution model, FXCM may act as a dealer and may receive additional compensation from trading.

Mini Accounts: Mini accounts offer 21 currency pairs and default to dealing desk execution where price arbitrage strategies are prohibited. FXCM determines, at its sole discretion, what encompasses a price arbitrage strategy. Mini accounts utilizing prohibited strategies or with equity surpassing 20,000 CCY may be switched to No Dealing Desk execution. See Execution Risks.
