FXCM Execution Study

One of our most important business goals is to provide superior execution. We have made it our mission each year to pioneer ever increasing levels of quality pricing, transparency and execution services, the bedrock of your trading experience.

BETTER PRICING FOR RETAIL CLIENTS

FXCM has recently 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. We wanted 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 FX1. The results show FXCM's execution of orders provide customers significant advantages for FX. We believe in so doing, you, our traders, can be confident and trust in FXCM as your broker. We are proud to now share these exciting results with you.
