FXCM Group Press Releases

Overview

FXCM offers a Mini, Standard and Active Trader account level to cater to your individual needs.

Forex Pricing

When you trade with a mini account, all trading costs are added in the spread – no commissions are added. FXCM Standard and Active Trader accounts have some of the lowest spread in the industry because our No Dealing Desk model streams the exact bid/ask quotes from our liquidity providers.
