FXCM LLC will only conduct business with a client for whom it considers such business to be appropriate and in assessing appropriateness, will rely on the information provided by the client in his/her/their application form. For this reason, it is essential that you immediately advise us in writing if there is subsequently an adverse change in the information you have provided.

Notice: This product summary should be read in conjunction with our Terms of Business. While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this guide, this information is subject to change, often without notice, and therefore is for guidance only. If you ever have any questions please contact FXCM directly.

Risk Warning: Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high risk to your capital. You may win or lose many times your original stake. Only trade with money you can afford to lose. Make sure you fully understand the risks involved and take advice if necessary. Foreign exchange trading may not be suitable for all customers.

Execution Disclaimer: FXCM aggregates bid and ask prices from a pool of liquidity providers and is the final counterparty when trading forex on FXCM's dealing desk and No Dealing Desk (NDD) execution models. With NDD, FXCM's platforms display the best-available direct bid and ask prices from the liquidity providers. In addition to the spread, the trading cost with NDD is a fixed lot-based commission at the open and close of the trade. While generally NDD accounts offer spreads with no markups, in some circumstances, FXCM may add a markup to NDD spreads. This may occur due to, but not limited to, account type, such as accounts opened through a referring agent. With dealing desk execution, FXCM can act as the dealer on any or all currency pairs. Backup liquidity providers fill in when FXCM does not act as the dealer. FXCM’s dealing desk has fewer liquidity providers than NDD. There are many other factors to consider when choosing an execution model (such as conflict of interest, trading style or strategy). See Execution Risks. Note: Contractual relationships with liquidity providers are consolidated through the firm's U.S. affiliate, Forex Capital Markets, LLC, which, in turn, provides technology and pricing to the group affiliate entities.

Average Spreads: Time-weighted average spreads are derived from tradable prices at FXCM from April 1, 2016 to June 30, 2016. The spread figures are for informational purposes only. FXCM is not liable for errors, omissions or delays or for actions relying on this information.

Commissions: Commission-based pricing is available on Standard and Active Trader account types. Commissions are charged at the open and close of trades in the denomination of the account.

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.
