Spreads & Commissions: Dynamic live streaming spread figures shown are from FXCM’s Best Bid/Best Offer pricing engine. Static historical spread figures are time-weighted averages derived from tradable prices at FXCM from 1 January 2016 to 31 March 2016. Spreads are variable and during normal market hours are subject to delay. FXCM strives to provide traders with tight, competitive spreads; however, there may be instances when market conditions cause spreads to widen well beyond the spreads displayed here.
Advertised spreads & commissions apply to Standard Accounts. Some accounts, such as Mini Accounts and those for clients of certain intermediaries, are subject to a markup. Accounts set to a commission structure will be charged in the currency denomination of the account.
The figures above are provided for information purposes only, and are not intended for trading purposes or advice. FXCM is not liable for any information errors, incompleteness, or delays, or for any actions taken in reliance on information contained herein.
Mini Accounts: Mini accounts offer 20 CFD instruments and 18 currency pairs, and default to dealing desk execution where price arbitrage strategies are prohibited. FXCM determines, at its sole discretion, what encompasses a price arbitrage strategy. Mini accounts utilising prohibited strategies may be switched to No Dealing Desk execution. Mini accounts with equity less than 10,000 CCY have 400:1 forex leverage; between 10,000 and 20,000, have 200:1. Mini accounts with equity greater than 20,000 will be switched to a Standard account with 100:1 leverage, No Dealing Desk execution, and low spreads + commissions. See Execution Risks.
