    Hi Laissez Faire,

    FXCM uses No Dealing Desk (NDD) forex execution, aka Straight Through Processing (STP). That means when a client places an order with FXCM, we immediately offset the risk on the other side with one of our 10+ liquidity providers. Whether the client’s trade ends up as a profit or a loss has no impact on our bottom line since we're compensated through the pip markup which acts as a commission.
