Compensation: When executing customers' trades, FXCM can be compensated in several ways, which include, but are not limited to adding a markup to the spreads it receives from its liquidity providers and adding a markup to rollover. Under the Dealing Desk execution model, FXCM may act as a dealer and may receive additional compensation from trading.
