Execution Disclaimer: Under FXCM's No Dealing Desk (NDD) execution model, FXCM is the final counterparty to all transactions. The quotes that are displayed on FXCM's platforms are the best available direct bid and ask quotes received from liquidity providers. In some circumstances, depending on account type, a markup will be added to the spread. Aside from the spread between bid and ask prices, the only trading cost is a fixed lot-based commission applied by FXCM at both the open and close of the trade.

For more information, see our Execution Risks. Please note that contractual relationships with liquidity providers are consolidated through the firm's U.S. affiliate, Forex Capital Markets, LLC. Forex Capital Markets, LLC maintains agreements with multiple price providers and in turn provides technology and pricing to the group affiliate entities.

An Individual account gives access to one client. All FXCM joint accounts will be registered as Joint Tenancy with Right of Survivorship (JTWROS). This means that account proceeds may be paid or delivered to either joint account holder during the lifetime of both or to the survivor after the death of one of them. Please see the Client Agreement for more information. Our business accounts (Corporate, Partnership, Trust and LLC) allow for multiple users and require additional legal documentation during the application process. Additional users must complete an application. Business accounts require a minimum deposit of $10,000.
