Across our trading accounts, you can find the right forex pricing model for your trading needs. Our goal is to give you the lowest trading costs possible.

Active Trader Pricing
Reduced pricing is available to high-volume investors who open an FXCM Active Trader account. You can get deep discounts on your trading costs based on the volume you trade.
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.
Commissions: Commission-based pricing is available on Standard and Active Trader account types. Commissions are charged at the open and close of trades in the denomination of the account.
