FXCM spreads are variable. The spreads listed above were derived from the weighted average of the spreads from the previous quarter, and updated quarterly. (Last updated: October, 2012) Additionally, advertised spreads may not be applicable to client accounts of referring brokers, and certain currency pairs may not be available for all account types.
Please note that FXCM strives to provide traders with tight, competitive spreads; however, there may be instances when market conditions cause spreads to widen beyond the spreads displayed here. Learn More
FXCM is compensated by a fixed mark-up on the spreads it receives from liquidity providers, who may also compensate FXCM for order flow. Under the dealing desk execution model, FXCM acts as a market maker and may receive additional compensation from trading. Finally, FXCM may receive compensation from commission charges to accounts that trade with FXCM's lowest spreads, available to qualifying accounts.
