Active Trader Account
FXCM’s Active Trader account is designed for high-volume investors. You can get deep discounts on your trading costs based on the volume you trade.
FXCM Standard and Active Trader accounts have some of the lowest spreads in the industry because our No Dealing Desk model streams the exact bid/ask quotes from our liquidity provides. So your spreads have no markups.1
Finding ways to improve your trading experience while lowering trading costs is where Active Trader really shines. You can save up to 55% in commissions when compared to trading with an FXCM Standard account.

How do you calculate your trading volume? Trading volume is round-turn, meaning half the volume comes from opening and half from closing. So, you open and close a trade in January, your volume is your trade size—a 500K trade is 500K in volume. If you open a trade in January and close it in February, you get half the volume in each month—a 500K trade is 250K in volume each month. This means that the more you trade, the more you save.
