FXCM Group Shows Its Spreads Are Better Than Advertised; Launches Effective Spread Widget

LONDON, May 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FXCM Group, LLC ("FXCM Group" or "FXCM"), a leading international provider of online FX and CFD trading, today launched an Effective Spread Widget. The widget shows the FXCM quoted spread for its top FX pairs, overlaid with the spread at which trades were filled (the Effective Spread), the difference being clearly displayed in a table key.

Amid its crusade of leading the market in transparency, FXCM proudly launches a tool which shows both the quoted spread and the Effective Spread. "What matters to traders is not what rate a broker quotes them but at what rate the broker fills them" said Brendan Callan, CEO of FXCM Group. "FXCM's clients experienced positive slippage on 25.79% of their orders and negative slippage on only 10.88%*. Due to our relentless work with liquidity providers we've been able to get our clients better fills than the spreads quoted on the platform. Many brokers will advertise tight spreads to entice traders in but through slippage and skewing, the trader often unknowingly pays a considerably higher Effective Spread. Choose your broker based on their Effective Spread, not their quoted spread." 

Execution continues to be a top priority for FXCM. You can review FXCM's liquidity providers, execution statistics with historical spreads, executed spreads, slippage statistics by order type, and execution speed on our website. https://www.fxcm.com/uk/about-fxcm/execution-transparency/ *Slippage Statistics are as of February 28, 2018.
