1 Execution Disclaimer: When trading Forex on both FXCM's Dealing Desk and No Dealing Desk (NDD) execution models, FXCM is the final counterparty to these transactions. In both execution models FXCM aggregates the bid and ask prices from a pool of liquidity providers. The quotes that are displayed on FXCM's platforms are the best available bid and ask quotes received from liquidity providers plus a fixed mark-up for each currency pair. On the Dealing Desk execution model FXCM can act as the dealer on some or all currency pairs. There are also back up liquidity providers that fill in whenever FXCM does not act as the dealer. Please note that FXCM's Dealing Desk employs fewer liquidity providers than the No Dealing Desk execution option.

For more information, see our Execution Risks.

Note: Contractual relationships with liquidity providers are consolidated through the FXCM Group, which, in turn, provides technology and pricing to the group affiliate entities.
