FXCM LTD will only conduct business with a client for whom it considers such business to be appropriate and in assessing appropriateness, will rely on the information provided by the client in his/her/their application form. For this reason, it is essential that you immediately advise us in writing if there is subsequently an adverse change in the information you have provided.

Notice: This product summary should be read in conjunction with our Terms of Business. While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this guide, this information is subject to change, often without notice, and therefore is for guidance only. If you ever have any questions please contact FXCM directly.

Mini Accounts: Mini accounts offer 18 CFD instruments and 21 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 default to 200:1 leverage. 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.

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.
