Friedberg Direct's Active Trader account is designed for high-volume investors. You can get deep discounts on your spread costs based on the volume you trade.
This is the average discount across our major pairs: EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY, USD/CHF, AUD/USD, EUR/JPY and GBP/JPY.
Monthly trading volume is the sum of all trades in terms of notional volume in USD for a given month. For example, if you trade 50,000k EUR/USD in one month at a rate of 1.20, your notional volume would be approximately 60,000,000 units of currency. As your monthly trading volume is above 50 million, as long as your account equity is above $25,000 for a given month, the commission per side per million would be $30 for trading in major currency pairs. The commission can be reduced to $25 per side per million for trading in major currency pairs if your monthly trading volume is above 150 million. If your trading volume is above 500 million, please contact FXCM. For the commission rate on other non-major currency pairs, please refer to standard rate card for details.
Commissions: Commission-based pricing is available on 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, Friedberg Direct 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.
Intermediary Markup: In some instances, accounts for clients of certain intermediaries are subject to a markup.
Active Trader Accounts: Active Trader accounts offers spreads plus mark-up pricing or spreads plus commission pricing depending on your equity level and trading volume.
Leverage: Leverage is a double-edged sword and can dramatically amplify your profits. It can also just as dramatically amplify your losses. Trading foreign exchange/CFDs with any level of leverage may not be suitable for all investors.
