Calculating Total Cost

The total cost to your trade is the spread multiplied by the pip cost. For example, assume EUR/USD on an AUD-denominated account has a spread of 1.2. To figure the total cost per 1K:

( Spread )
x ( Pip Cost )
x ( Number of Lots Traded )
= Total Cost

Compensation: When executing customers' trades, FXCM can be compensated in several ways, which include, but are not limited to: spreads, 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, etc. 

Trading Accounts: Price arbitrage strategies are prohibited and FXCM determines, at its sole discretion, what encompasses a price arbitrage strategy. Trading accounts offer spreads plus mark-up pricing. Spreads are variable and are subject to delay. Traders can trade up to 400:1 leverage on FX and 200:1 leverage on CFDs. Leverage ratio could vary depending on the account’s equity level.  

Pip Cost: The pip cost may vary depending on the account denomination and the notional value of a currency pair which fluctuates on a daily basis. Current pip costs can be found on your trading platform. 

Average Spreads: Time-weighted average spreads are derived from tradable prices at FXCM from April 1, 2018 to June 30, 2018. Spreads are variable and are subject to delay. Note that Forex spreads are displayed in pips, while CFD spreads are displayed in points. The spread figures are for informational purposes only. FXCM is not liable for errors, omissions or delays or for actions relying on this information.
