FXCM believes this will lead to consistently lower spreads. Spreads have already decreased in 13 currency pairs since the introduction of No Dealing Desk execution. The announcements were made by Drew Niv, CEO of the global currency trading firm. âIn February of this year, 95% of our direct clients were transferred to No Dealing Desk trade execution,â said Niv. âNow, nearly all our clients both direct and Introducing Broker clients are using the new system.â âAll our clients can now trade on rates provided by six of the worldâs largest banks, who compete to offer the best prices â frequently two pip spreads. We are presently negotiating to add as many as three more global banks, as we focus on obtaining the lowest possible trading rates for our clients.â âIn effect, we have now ended our dealing desk trading system, thereby removing any possible conflict of interest. With many other forex brokers, a clientâs losses might be linked to a brokerâs gains. FXCM hopes others follow our example to put the clientâs interest first.â said Niv.
