These commissions highlight our major pairs: EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY, USD/CHF, AUD/USD, EUR/JPY and GBP/JPY. But Active Trader gives you the same great discount rate off all Standard commissions.

How do you calculate your trading volume? Trading volume is round-turn, meaning half the volume comes from opening and half from closing. So, you open and close a trade in January, your volume is your trade size—a 500K trade is 500K in volume. If you open a trade in January and close it in February, you get half the volume in each month—a 500K trade is 250K in volume each month. This means that the more you trade, the more you save.


1 Monthly trading volume is the sum of all trades in lots that month. If you trade 30K EUR/USD, 200K GBP/USD and 50,000K USD/JPY, your monthly trading volume is 50,230,000 and your commission per million is $30.

2 The discount rate is the percent difference between the Active Trader discount and FXCM’s Standard commissions.
