Pushing the envelope in FX


FXCM combines cutting edge technology and market expertise to deliver the world’s leading retail FX trading platform.

FXCM is a global provider of online FX trading and related services for over 170,000 retail customers around the world.

With 12 offices across EMEA, APAC and Americas, FXCM’s trading software, customer support and research is available to cater for traders all over the globe. Each month an average of around USD $350 billion in notional volume is traded on FXCM’s retail platforms, offering best execution, advanced liquidity and competitive spreads in all major currency pairs.

Retail traders have easy access to the FX market through FXCM’s Trading Station Platform, where they can take advantage of one-click order execution and trading from real-time charts, placing six different types of orders. Trades can also be executed by using desktop, web or mobile solutions, integrating trading comfortably into people’s everyday lives.

For more advanced traders, FXCM offers a variety of market-leading automated trading platforms that allow users to take advantage of the 24-hour FX market effortlessly. The diverse selection of software accessible through Mirror Trader, MetaTrader4 and NinjaTrader enables users to choose between a choice of systems, programming languages and hosting services.

Traders can be sure that they are seeing fair and transparent market prices as FXCM’s platform is based on the No Dealing Desk forex execution model, where price quotations from many of the world’s leading global banks, financial institutions and market makers in over 56 currency pairs are streamed to clients with only a small markup.

Complementary to FXCM’s selection of retail trading platforms, it aims to provide the most up to date information, research and education needed for successful trading. Access to the necessary resources to inform trading decisions should be considered a crucial foundation by anyone looking to build a successful track record in the FX markets.  FXCM also offers demo accounts that enable users to try out new strategies before using them in live trades.

Execution model

In comparison to other firms that act as market makers and run a trading book against their clients, FXCM’s No Dealing Desk forex execution model lets many of the world largest liquidity providers compete to offer FXCM’s customers the best prices without third-party intervention.

By adopting the No Dealing Desk model, FXCM does not restrict any trading strategy or give re-quotes, providing clients with rates taken direct from a multitude of liquidity providers, automatically selecting the best bid and offer rates and streaming them on the platform with a slight markup, creating some of the most competitive FX rates and ensuring transparency throughout the trading process.

In extremely volatile and fast-moving market conditions or during a market gap, where there is room for positive slippage, FXCM’s execution model executes the trade at a better price if the market moves in the desired direction while the order is being filled. So, if the market moves past the point before the order is filled, it will close the trade on the improved price.

Education

One of the benefits of FXCM’s business model is that it benefits from successful trades; therefore, it places a lot of resources on educating clients to help them become better traders.

FXCM has developed DailyFX for research and educational purposes, consisting of a team of full-time analysts who publish more than 30 articles a day on FX, gold, and oil trading, providing market news and strategy tips. The website also offers customers trading education through on-demand video lessons, live instructor sessions, and ongoing trading support by course instructors.

Mobile trading

FXCM has put enormous effort and resources into ensuring that its mobile and tablet trading applications are amongst the best in the market, and incorporates all the major functions of the FXCM desktop and web Trading Station platform.

The main strength of the FXCM mobile and table app is the similarity in features, functionality, and usability when compared to TSDesktop and TSWeb. It gives the client a user experience that ensures they do not need to completely relearn a new platform. 

Charting

FXCM offers a variety of different types of charting packages is due to the wide spectrum of traders that it attract. Different traders will have different preferences on tools and customisation needs – therefore, tailored options for its wide customer base is a key part of FXCM’s offering. 

Many traders use technical indicators and a variety of chart elements to analyse the market and locate trading opportunities, the most popular of which are deemed to be Moving Averages, Relative Strength Index, Average True Range Indicator and Bollinger Bands. Altogether, FXCM offers over 50 technical indicators.

FXCM also offers a number of free web based charts that can accessed through our website www.fxcm.com.

Remember that trading foreign exchange/CFDs margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors as you could sustain a loss of some or all of your deposited funds.
