To give tighter spreads and more transparent pricing, we quote out to more decimal places than many other trading companies. For example:
9,790.05 on GER30
9,790.0 on GER30
When you trade with FXCM, your trading costs are automatically calculated on your platform, so you see real-time spreads and pip costs when you trade. To calculate the trading cost in the currency of your account:
Spread x Pip Cost x Number of Contracts = Total Transaction Cost
Compensation: When executing customers' trades, FXCM can be compensated in several ways, which include, but are not limited to: charging fixed lot-based commissions at the open and close of a trade, adding a markup to the spreads it receives from its liquidity providers for certain account types, 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.
Target spreads in UK100, GER30, FRA40 and AUS200 may widen when the respective exchange is closed.
