The FXCM Advantage
Trade on FXCM's award-winning Trading Station and take advantage of mobile and web platforms, one-click order execution and trading from real-time charts. However, the heart of our business is our No Dealing Desk forex execution. Our large network of forex liquidity providers, including global banks, financial institutions, prime brokers and other market makers, allows us to offer competitive spreads on major currency pairs. Serious traders expect orders to be filled quickly, at the best price available, and nothing less. This is what FXCM delivers. When the No Dealing Desk receives your order, we fill at the best available price, which includes FXCM's markup based on account type and liquidity provider.
One of the advantages of our No Dealing Desk execution is that we make money on a per trade basis, so we benefit from successful traders. Therefore, we focus heavily on providing educational services to help you become better traders. Through DailyFX.com, we offer free news and market research, on-demand educational videos, live instructor sessions, and ongoing trading support by the course instructors.
We are regulated and have offices in a number of global jurisdictions including the United States, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, France, Italy, Germany, Greece, Australia and Japan. With offices, partners and affiliates in the world’s major financial centers, we are uniquely positioned to provide exceptional service to forex traders around the world.
