The table below explains the main differences between an ECN Broker and a traditional forex broker.

On dealer forex trading platforms, the dealer knows your open positions, trading style and tactics and can use this information to his advantage.

Client-To-Liquidity
Trading

On the FXCC ECN, you can trade instantly on prices streamed by leading Financial Institutions.

Re-quotes

Re-quotes are common in traditional spread trading. FXCC does not re-quote. The platform’s technology and strict price/time dealing protocol are designed to fill your trade at the current market price.

Conflict Of Interest

FXCC doesn’t take positions against its clients at all.

Trading During Economic Releases

FXCC allows all clients regardless of forex trade size to trade and put in new orders during key economic releases. During these releases, and at times of unusual market volatility, bid/offer spreads are wider than those available during ‘normal’ market conditions.
