FXCM’s proprietary back office collects all trades done across a variety of ECN and single bank trading venues, providing clients a holistic view of their positions. Pre-trade and post trade credit checks ensure efficient and effective allocation of net open position (NOP) utilization.

Independent and Unbiased Prime Services

All FXCM Prime customers execute user agreements with each trading venue, paying trading commissions directly to each ECN or single bank. FXCM earns revenue through commissions collected from pre-agreed clearing fees.*

As a result, FXCM does not mark-up third party trading venues or receive trading “kickbacks” generated by third party ECNs or banks. FXCM Prime behaves as does a tier one clearer, and thus is truly agnostic to your choice of trading venues.

Centralized Clearing

Maker and taker sessions available to trade through multiple execution venues such as Currenx, EBS, FastMatch, FX All, Hotspot, and several other ECN venues. All trading PnL collates into FXCM’s proprietary back office where net positioning and PnL is displayed across all trading channels.

Single NOP Allocation

Pre-trade risk management solutions performed on either maker and/or taker sessions allow our customers the ability to manage one NOP limit. No more need for intraday limit increases within single venues, FXCM issues a single top level NOP that is managed across all platforms.

Speedy Onboarding

FXCM Prime allows customers with a minimum balance of over $250,000 and no asset requirement.
