Execution Disclaimer: FXCM is your counterparty to every transaction. FXCM aggregates bid and ask prices from a pool of liquidity providers and is the final counterparty when trading forex/CFD on FXCM's trading platform. Note: Contractual relationships with liquidity providers are consolidated through the FXCM Group, which, in turn, provides technology and pricing to the group affiliate entities.

Compensation: When executing customers' trades, FXCM can be compensated in several ways, which include, but are not limited to: spreads, 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, etc.

Price arbitrage strategies are prohibited and FXCM determines, at its sole discretion, what encompasses a price arbitrage strategy. Trading accounts offer spreads plus mark-up pricing. Spreads are variable and are subject to delay. Traders can trade up to 400:1 leverage on FX and 200:1 leverage on CFDs. Leverage ratio could vary depending on the account’s equity level.
