Execution Study - Better Pricing for Retail Clients
FXCM completed a study that examined the quality of execution for FXCM LTD client orders versus the three largest FX trading venues globally, venues widely considered to represent the benchmark for reliable FX pricing. The goal of this study is to explain why FXCM's pricing is better for retail clients. The results of this study show FXCM LTD retail client order prices to be better than the Futures Market and Interbank Market prices for FX.
FXCM LTD was equal to or better than the quoted futures price 81.34% of the time compared to the spot equivalent quoted futures prices on the CME leading to potential savings of $42,529,156 for FXCM LTD clients.
FXCM LTD was equal to or better than the quoted Interbank market price 94.84% of the time compared to the spot equivalent quoted Interbank market price leading to potential savings of $114,588,455 for FXCM LTD clients.
