FXCC ECN/STP regulated Foreign Exchange Broker

on Wed Feb 25, 2015 12:47 pm
FXCC is a regulated Foreign Exchange Broker that offers a wide range of trading technologies and services. Our ECN/STP business model allows our clients to take advantage of transparent real-time pricing. All our clients have access to a unique Forex Trading environment that offers sophisticated STP (Straight Through Processing) liquidity, execution and trading functionality. Our Non-dealing desk model allows client orders to be executed automatically and instantaneously through our Market network of liquidity providers.

FXCC’s business model (ECN/STP) offers complete anonymity, full transparency, advanced execution, direct and competitive market prices and spreads. This creates a trading environment with no re-quotes and no conflict of interests or bias against any trader or forex trading system including automated systems and forex scalping.

The FXCC Forex Trading Advantage

Our services - for professionals and active traders, hedge funds, money managers and banks - are based on the following main principles:

FXCC’s ECN trading model provides clients with transparent execution and very competitive multibank bid/offer spreads where you can get spreads as low as 1/10 pip on all majors. *

FXCC’s ECN/STP forex model guarantees that all market participants are equal with respect to: instant access to prices provided by leading FX banks.

All clients have equal possibilities to enter bids and offers at, inside or outside the current spread. *

Anonymity on the ECN/STP ensures all clients see the same neutral prices. This ensures that our rates are free from bias potentially introduced by a dealer’s expectation of whether the client is going long or short based on the dealer’s knowledge. When trading through FXCC’s ECN/STP model all orders, stops, and limits reside on the FXCC servers and are sent to liquidity providers as market orders all looking as if they come from one client - FXCC. **

FXCC’s ECN model eliminates conflicts of interest inherent in some other dealing desk platforms. We do not take positions against our clients, we fill client’s orders from the best bid/offer prices available to us from our liquidity providers. A typical dealing desk forex broker profits from your trading losses. FXCC doesn't.

FXCC offers its clients diversified sophisticated and state-of-the-art trading platforms. Our trading platforms were built with the latest technology to ensure our clients receive and enjoy the highest possible level of service. As our client, you can choose the forex trading platform that best fits your needs and particular trading style.

FXCC is regulated by the Cyprus Security and Exchange Commission. One of the many regulatory conditions is the provision of Segregated Accounts. All funds deposited with us by our clients remain in segregated accounts and totally separate from any accounts FXCC maintains. Your peace of mind comes from knowing your forex account funds are safe and you can concentrate on your trading.

As an authorized Cyprus Investment Firm, FXCC is authorised by the FCA as a Financial Services company licensed to operate in the EEA (European Economic Area). Financial Services firms regulated by a member state of the EEA are permitted to offer cross-border services and products to other member states. The FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) maintains a central registry of such firms. Our reference number on the FSA registry is 549790.

ECN Forex Trading

ECN, which stands for Electronic Communication Network, really is the way of the future for the Foreign Exchange Markets. ECN can best be described as a bridge linking smaller market participants with tier-1 liquidity providers through a FOREX ECN Broker.

This linkage is done using sophisticated technology setup named FIX Protocol (Financial Information Exchange Protocol). At one end, the broker obtains liquidity from tier-1 liquidity providers (Major Banks) and makes it available for trading to its clients. On the other side, the broker delivers clients' orders to Liquidity Providers for execution.

An ECN broker benefits from commission fees per transaction. The higher trading volume the broker's clients generate, the higher the broker's profitability.

FXCC ECN Advantages:

Completely Anonymous.All ECN trading activity is totally anonymous. Anonymity enables traders to deal on neutral prices, which reflect the real market conditions only and are not biased against the client's direction based on forex trading strategies, tactics or current market positions.

Instantaneous Trade Execution

Clients trade forex instantly on live streaming, best executable prices with immediate confirmations. FXCC does not provide a "last look" to price makers, so FXCC trades are final and confirmed as soon as they are dealt. There is no dealing desk to intervene, so there are no re-quotes.

Client-to-Bank Trading
The FXCC ECN model allows clients to trade on the global liquidity of world-class banks and qualified financial institutions.

Automated forex Trading/Market Data
Through the use of our API, clients can connect their trading models and risk management systems to our market data feed and matching engine. FXCC's live, neutral, executable market data includes the Best Bid and Best Ask prices at the time. These attributes of our data make it robust in back testing trading models and powering them for live trading.

Variable Spreads
Unlike a dealer, however, FXCC does not control the bid/offer spread and therefore can not provide the same bid/offer spread at all times. FXCC offers variable spreads.

On an ECN, clients have direct access to market prices. Market prices fluctuate reflecting supply and demand, volatility and other conditions. The FXCC ECN enables clients to trade on tight bid/offer spreads, which are as low as 1 pip on all majors in normal market conditions.
