    WOW! I've requested one, IF the information contained in it is accurate it will reveal more about FXCM operations, culture, plans, etc than any of us could ever hope to know. The information should reveal how other FX companies operate as well...a treasure trove of information...I can barely wait!

    I would suggest that each and every trader get a copy, read it, and discuss it here...we will all learn from it!
  4. You want to learn more ... ?


    And especially of interest :

  5. Odd to see FXCM going to IPO market, before we have their formal answers on how they will adjust their business model after the Aug. 30th release of new CFTC rules on retail off-exchange forex transactions. See my blog on that.

    Will FXCM's retail forex trading platforms in the UK and other countries need to adhere to the new CFTC rules limiting leverage on majors to 50:1 leverage, FIFO-only and more?

    If that answer is yes, will that alter how FXCM does business and will it hinder their revenues and profits?

    On the other hand, if tax havens are limited in doing business with Americans, solid U.S. retail forex dealers may win over that new business.
  6. All you have to know about the impetus of FXCM's IPO.
