Average Spreads: Time-weighted average spreads are derived from tradable prices at FXCM from July 1, 2016 to Sept 30, 2016. Spreads are variable and are subject to delay. 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.

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 offer spreads plus mark-up pricing. Spreads are variable and are subject to delay. Mini accounts utilizing prohibited strategies or with equity surpassing 20,000 CCY may be switched to No Dealing Desk execution. See Execution Risks.
