Forex

Spreads

When you're CFD trading, FXCM Standard and Active Trader Accounts accounts have some of the lowest spreads in the industry because our No Dealing Desk model streams the exact bid/ask quotes from our liquidity providers.

COMMISSIONS

Unlike Mini Accounts, Standard and Active Trader CFD trading accounts charge commissions to keep spreads as low as possible, which is especially beneficial to day traders and scalpers. Also, commissions make forex pricing transparent by separating our per-order fee from the spread.
