togr posted: While I believe FXCm was cheating their clients I also know Forex.com. I had to left Forex.com as they had serious issues with the trades I would say they were cheating much more.
But have Forex.com said they are NDD or they were stating they are market makers at that time you traded with them? I think they are one of the largest market makers without pretending to be something else. But since you have experience with them, you can judge better 😄 I am glad that FXCM got what they deserved in the end.
Yes, in fact this is a serious hit for all their US shareholders and these guys will certainly try to get something back from the lost business. Thanks for the article! I see you post useful links quite often! 😄
For what it seems, the law firm is seeking to form a collective lawsuit on behalf of disgruntled shareholders.
I suppose it was a matter of time?
It was about time they took a spoonful of their own medicine. It went from being one of the best and most solid to being the heap of scammers. They probably got big as a result of scams made over the years.

Why the name change?
'FXCM still has its regulated forex businesses in the UK and across the major EU markets Germany, Italy and France, Australia, Israel and South Africa, as well as in Hong Kong, New Zealand, Japan. The broker offers forex, CFDs, and spread betting services.'
FXCM name now has a bad smell to it worldwide. Needs to change name.
They clearly have problems because recently Global Brokerage Inc., formerly known as FXCM Inc., informed the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of a notification from NASDAQ Global Market that it might delist it over falling market cap. According to the filing, on May 2 NASDAQ informed Global Brokerage that for the prior 30 consecutive business days, the market value of the company’s publicly held shares was less than $15 million. (https://smnweekly.com/2017/05/09/nasdaq-warns-ex-fxcm-of-eventual-delisting-over-low-market-cap/) This does not meet NASDAQ’s requirements for continued listing on the exchange.
