What is a key feature of FXCC ?

FXCC offers ECN trading, with low Forex spreads but without a commission charge on one of its account types.

No dealing desk

FXCC uses an electronic algorithm to route orders with Straight Through Processing (STP) and does not use a dealing desk to process orders.

Automated trading

FXCC allows the use of any Expert Advisor (EA) on MT4. EAs are automated trading strategies which execute trades on behalf of the trader, in accordance with their programmed algorithms. The trader can use EAs already built or build them themselves.

Account types and minimum deposit

FXCC offers three account types. These are the ECN XL account which has a minimum deposit of $100, the ECN Standard account which has a minimum deposit of $10,000 and the ECN Advanced account which has a minimum deposit of $100,000.

All account types provide the MT4 platform, ECN/STP order execution, mobile trading, micro lots (0.01 lots), free technical analysis, SMS notifications, VPS, Economic Calendar and Trading Tools, allow Expert Advisors, scalping and hedging and provide a personal account manager. The ECN XL account additionally can offer zero commissions () and zero mark-up. The ECN Advanced account provides more markets to trade than the other account types (200+ vs 30). All trading styles are allowed at FXCC and a news feed and analysis is available on the website. FXCC

Account opening

FXCC can open accounts in most countries of the world, but cannot open accounts for residents of some countries, including the United States and Canada. Account currencies are GBP, EUR and USD.

Online trading platform - MetaTrader 4

FXCC offers MT4, MT4 mobile, MT4 multi-terminal, and for licensed asset managers, FXCC MAM.


FXCC offers trading in markets covering Forex, Gold, Silver and Indices. The ECN Standard and ECN XL accounts offer 28 Forex pairs plus Gold and Silver, for a total of 30. Trading in Indices is only allowed for the ECN Advanced account type, which has 200+ instruments in total.


  • The ECN XL account does not charge commissions.
  • The ECN Standard account charges commissions of 0.75 pips per lot per side for Forex and $7.5 per lot per side for Metals.

Spreads and leverage

Spreads are variable with EUR/USD spreads from 0.1. The range of EUR/USD tends to be 0.2-0.6, under normal market conditions. As the ECN XL account does not have a commission charge then this can be a competitive spread. The spread for Gold (XAU/USD) is around 2.5 pips.
