Innovation has been one of the driving factors behind the continued growth of the FX industry, and it is FXCM’s commitment to frequent innovation that has established us as one of the leading providers of online FX and CFD trading and other related services.
Our CFD Prime service – released late 2021 – is the latest new addition to our platform which is demonstrative of this approach. CFD Prime brings the netting, rollover fee, and margin benefits enjoyed in the FX market to those trading CFD products, something never-before-seen in the trading ecosystem.
Through collaboration with Integral, we’ve underpinned CFD Prime with market-leading trading technology. This allows more market participants to connect and trade with the widest range of counterparties, and also eliminates bilateral credit as a barrier to market, meaning many can access core CFD liquidity more efficiently.
Quick and seamless connectivity
National lockdowns and shifts to remote working put further pressure on quick and seamless connectivity to the markets while working remotely. With FXCM Pro, you can trust us to provide increased connectivity and speed in emerging markets, third party integration and multiple delivery channels.
We also enable institutional FX clients in all global regions to access FXCM’s institutional services through global data centres, including NY4, LD4 and TY3. This provides our clients with further reduced latency and faster execution.
Sourcing efficient liquidity providers
Throughout 2021, access to tier 1 liquidity was paramount. FXCM Pro’s liquidity management team worked hard to source the most efficient liquidity providers. We partnered with venues to match client needs, be it single tickets on large orders, stickier pricing intraday on metals, and much more.
Through our partnership with FlexTrade, our clients have access to market-leading liquidity, pricing and execution solutions. Our aim is to significantly reduce the cost of trading, offering tight spreads, best execution and access to the market.
It is a fully customisable service suitable for any trader – providing a significant edge in areas such as bank and non-bank liquidity customisation, connectivity between market makers and takers, reporting, and measuring best available execution.
Client First, Trader Driven: innovation as the cornerstone of industry success
“Client First, Trader Driven” is more than just a tagline. We’re committed to upgrading the trading experiences of our clients, and our new CFD Prime service is the latest in the long line of our innovations which once again illustrates our desire to cater for the unmet the needs of market participants.

We will have an installation at booth 11 where our team can provide information on our latest innovations such as CFD Prime our other best-in-class trading solutions.
